Ty is branding his new heifers today but he is also putting in a tag that saves a skin plug to test for BVD and record DNA. Not sure if there is a $ return for doing it now but hopefully down the road there is-we plan on doing the entire cowherd-itsure helps with grazing management if after A'I we can run all the cows,hfrs and bulls together so we can maximize herd impact on our pastures. Our deal is focused on making momma cows so every bull we run will calve on hfrs. Dont ever be deluded into thinking light bw genetics can't have bigger calves. One of our best customers breeds our cows to power black simmies with no trouble-they calve about 600 on grass in the heart of wolf country.
