Producer thoughts on replacement heifers, genomics
The Cattle Business Weekly
Four beef producers from around the country participated in a panel discussion at the Beef Improvement Federation meeting in Brookings, S.D., this June. On the topic of selecting replacement heifers, Trey Patterson of Padlock Ranch in Ranchester, Wyo., says they have been in an expansion mode the last few years and run as many cattle on rangeland in the winter as they can. They put some pressure on them in the winter before they go through one round of artificial insemination and no cleanup bulls.
