REDUCING BAD CALVINGS IS GOOD BUSINESS

Reducing bad calvings is good business (and how to do it) – Terence Pye – Farmer Breeding Pedigree Salers, Middleton-on-Leven, North Yorkshire

In suckled beef production, strong conformation and fast DLWG are key traits, but are associated with increased bad calvings, which are tolerated by farmers as a necessary evil. A breeding program targeting lower birth weight, larger pelvic area, and the impact of the myostatin gene, achieves dramatic improvements in calving ease, directly enhancing herd performance, profitability, sustainability, and improving welfare for suckler cow and suckler farmer.
