Genomics enhance beef cattle breeding

Selecting breeding animals on how they look, by phenotype, worked for centuries. Progress in improving cattle was made just on appearance.

Jump starting those late calving cows

Breeding season will be soon underway for the mid April and May calving cow herds. However, we all have some late calving cows that are less than 40 to 60 days postpartum. The question is how can we “jump start” some of those late calving cows to start cycling and move them up in the calving season?

 

The impact of hot weather on bull fertility

Recently a producer asked about the impact that the heat of the summer of 2012 may have had on the reduced calf crop that was discovered the following spring. In particular, they wanted to know if high summer temperatures could lead to reduced fertility in bulls.

Has she come into heat?

Success in the cow-calf industry is dependent on the females’ ability to produce a calf annually. Managing the postpartum interval, or the time between calving and when she comes into heat, is important for maintaining your yearly calving interval.
