Selection of the herd bull
"Two major breeding programs in beef cattle improvement are: (1) purebred, in which the objective is to imrpove the genetic worth of the herd, and (2) commercial production, in which the objective is to take advantage of genetic material to achieve the greatest possible production. The two breeding programs are different. Selection for either system requires excellent judgment and timely decisions."--First page.
