dc.description.abstract"The Missouri Beef Cattle Performance Testing Program is designed to help improve Missouri beef cattle in both quality and growth through breeding and selection. The phases of this program are available to beef cattle breeders who may use them to check each animal's performance from birth until it is added to a herd or slaughtered. The program is flexible and will be helpful to both purebred and commercial cattlemen in their selection and breeding programs. It is most useful in evaluating individual animals within a herd. It is not designed for the purpose of comparing one herd with another herd or one breed with another breed, because the environmental conditions will vary from herd to herd. However, in cooperation with many of the respective breed associations, sire evaluation can and must be made across herds. Missouri is presently in the process of initiating a sire evaluation program in conjunction with the postweaning central testing station."--from page 1eng
