Evaluating Sire-Progeny Links, Breeding Plans and Information Management in Multi-Sire Commercial Herds

Evaluating Sire-Progeny Links, Breeding Plans and Information Management in Multi-Sire Commercial Herds

West-Central Forage Association, Lakeland College & Olds College have been collaborating on a multi-year project evaluating the use of DNA testing to link sires with their offspring in commercial beef herds utilizing multi-sire breeding groups. This session will discuss some of the early results, and the potential benefits of using herd performance information, including sire-progeny links, to inform breeding decisions to generate measurable productivity & profitability improvements.
