Cool Stuff... I really have enjoyed visiting with the Pfizer....er... Zoetis guys. On some things, I really look for the top half of the breed just to keep me from going backwards. Tenderness scores are new enough that that is the case. We get really good feedback already. So, improvement isn't really what I am looking for as much as not making a bad choice.

I spent a lot of time looking at tenderness. I finally decided that the Simmental cross seems to give us an advantage (Breed Difference) and we get great feedback. So, rather than sacrifice other things and bypass some great bulls, we just stay away from the bottom half.

2015 brown bagger series question. How long after the webinar will the taped session be made available to the general public? I would like to watch all the sessions before attending the 2015 AAA annual meeting and Genomic symposium.

Day late and a dollar short. Sorry folks.

PATB- Last year I don't think they got the recordings up till November or December. I would contact Bob Weaber at KSU.
I will be at the AAA annual meeting. Would love to meet up in person.

Some new content from A Steak in Genomics. Much meatier than recent posts.

What have we learned from sequencing efforts to date?
http://blog.steakgenomics.org/2015/10/what-have-we-learned-from-sequencing.html

A little jargon heavy. Please let me know what terms need better definitions.
