I have worked with beef producers as a herd health veterinarian for over 30 years and these producers have taught me what is important to them. Our cattle are bred with these goals in mind.
– Calving ease – Calf vigor at birth
– Excellent disposition – Plenty of growth
– Moderate milk – Moderate frame
– Fleshing ability – Superior maternal traits
– Tremendous carcass
In my “day job” I see numerous “problem” cattle. I do not want any of these problems with my own cattle.
