Improving beef with better bulls

(Continued)

While making the switch to artificial breeding in beef cattle is not easy, it can be done and will pay off in the long run. The resulting offspring will have improved genetics, the potential for higher growth rates and higher quality beef for your customer’s next cookout. For more information about handling facilities, switching to artificial insemination or sire selection, contact me at 561-7450 or email peter.hagar@cornell.edu.
