Profitability Potential with Crossbreeding
Dr. Bob Hough

First let me say that there is room in the industry for all types of commercial breeding systems, from straightbreeding to the most complicated crossbreeding programs. However, with Angus having over half the market share for seedstock bulls in the commercial industry, straightbreeding of Angus has become ever more prevalent. This trend comes with good reason; Angus combines growth with calving ease, high marbling and high milk.
