Are you keeping any replacement heifers?
What are you trying to do?
Just curious myself, but may help those with more experience answer your question.
This is a multifaceted question with a commercial cow herd there will be anomalies depending on the cross of the terminal calf. The most predictable will be on the F-1 calf the 3 way maximizes hybred vigor you have to remember it stars at conception not birth. After the 3 way cross you are getting too many crayons out of the box predictability and hybred vigor starts getting reduced.Hunter":38p3v5v7 said:If one is running a cow/calf operation how much should they look at the EPD figures of Marb, RE, Fat, $F, $G or even $B?
Thanks in advance.
