GENETIC RESOURCES
a different philosophy
                           

                           

 

                           
The mission at Genetic Resources is to provide beef cattle genetics and services designed to affect in a positive manner, the profitability of client cowherds. Most genetic suppliers choose to influence cowherd profits by using multiple generations of genetics based on maximum production traits. While this “maximum” approach is successful in advancing production performance, it also decreased cowherd profitability in many cases. We recognize the need for “optimum” cowherd genetics as a key component
to a more profitable cow-calf operation.
                           
Genetic Resources philosophy is to “optimize” the following traits to increase cowherd profitability:
                           
    • Fertility
    • Structural soundness
    • Longevity
    • Labor and feed costs
    • Disposition
    • Necessity traits
                           
Systematic use of both production and cowherd traits when producing terminal animals can assist clients interested in capturing the benefits of both systems. Our cattle contain the genetics to be efficient “factories” and when mated to production system bulls will produce calves buyers are willing to pay a premium to own.
