I will start
Remitall (maybe gone soon)
Now each of these programs are different some very different. But they all seem to take care of their core customers which is why they have all been in business for a long time. Now who will still be around 20 years from now??

Debter has great Line 1 Herefords, as do many other breeders in the country. It is my belief that the Line 1 cattle have become so diverse and widely bred that many have actually become too heterozygous in their genetic makeup. I think the next "great breeder" of Line 1 cattle will likely be the one that decides to tighten up those genetics by taking the most favorable animals for the traits he/she is breeding for and intensifying them in those traits through closebreeding.
