Thanks to all who made our 2016 bull sale such a success. We are looking ahead to our 2017 sale, which is scheduled for Saturday, March 11.
For most herds, sire selection is the primary driver of genetic progress over the years. Sure, your cowherd provides half of the genetics for your calf crop, but if you retain your own heifers, those genetics are a reflection of the bulls you chose 3, 4, or even 15 years ago! Be sure you’re taking the time to make the right sire selection today for the future of your herd!
Brad Z Ranch owner Jim Bradford wrote a while back for our Compost Pile (aka our blog page) to share some thoughts about the direction of the cattle industry.
