Israeli cattle ranchers seek out Ohio genetics
Farm and Dairy
A high percentage of the cattle in Israel are a Simmental breed from Europe and can be traced back to just four genetic lines. There are currently only 50,000 head of beef cattle in the whole country of Israel, which created a need for more genetic lines to produce more cattle for the country. During a recent mission trip to Israel, embryos from two Ohio farmers were implanted in the indigenous herds.
