THE ART OF BREEDING PROPER CATTLE -Part One
By Will Winter, DVM
The art of breeding proper livestock boils down to two major criteria: selecting the good ones and culling the bad ones. For me, culling is so painful that I’m terrible at doing it! I save the losers! I seem to be drawn to some of the wrong ones for all the wrong reasons, maybe because I feel sorry for them. That is why this article is not about me!
When I need to make herd-building decisions, like we all need to do, I am inclined to turn to the professionals. And at this point I will admit, not everyone agrees who will be that person. There are several out there. This story is about the ones that I have found and why I think they are on to something very interesting. Please come along for the ride and see if you agree.
