CONCEPTIONS Dairy route newsletter Aug-Sept 2020
Breeding is a longer-term decision than the choices we make today in feeding our cows or planting our crops or planning equipment upgrades… and the depressed values for replacement heifers tend to obscure the need to fine tune “selection” to what the future milk and cattle markets will require.
The only way to control how good your future herd is going to be is to put some effort into breeding your own replacements today. As we choose to raise fewer heifers to control our costs, how we produce those heifers is more important.
Let us help you. There is no cost to a discussion before any money is spent. The latest and greatest technologies carry the highest costs, can we prove they offer the most profitable results? Let’s figure out the answers first.
