Choosing cows that work for YOU
October 29 - October 30$2 – $300
Choosing bulls whose sons work well in the feedlot system, creates daughters that need quite a bit of supplementation to get by on your grass. What if you used bulls that create daughters who can thrive on your grass with very low extra input costs???
40% of your profit is cows that calve every year. 30% of your profit is low cost cows. 20% is growth (antagonistic to reproduction) and 10% carcass traits.
This school is designed to equip you with the information you need to make that transformation.
