Modern Commercial Beef Sire Selection: BIF Fact Sheet
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Sire selection can and should be more accurate today than ever before. Beef breed associations have developed programs that use performance information on a calf's relatives in addition to its own record to estimate its breeding value for different traits. This fact sheet discusses methods of using this data and considerations involved in selecting bulls to be used in natural service.
