Sire selection is one of the most important aspects of any breeding operation. Selecting a good herd sire is based on many factors and the effects of that decision will last for generations to come. We can use them not only to help make great brood cows but also to aid in building a quality feeder calf to capture premium prices at auction. Join your fellow beef producers in an interactive environment to learn more about Expected Progeny Differences (EPD) and Sire Selection.
Phil will discuss the ins and outs of EPD's and their importance in choosing your next herd sire. As well as ways to capture those premiums on your feeder calves at the sale barn.
**BQA Recertification forms will be available for those who need recertification credits. **
Light refreshments will be provided.
