We use tools in animal genetic selection, laboratory testing, and professional journal articles to help us continue to learn about production. Individual animal performance records illustrate animals that meet our requirements.
Electronic identification tags help to track the animal throughout
production. We use DNA marker testing that is now available to
identify bulls whose progeny has the potential for tender beef. Our
forage, soils, and meat have all been tested in university
laboratories and we will continue to do such on occasion. We want to
ensure a good product for our customers.
Forages have been tested for both quantity and quality numerous
times during a research trial. Cool-season forages include annual
ryegrass, oats, cereal rye, wheat, and clovers. Warm-season forages
focus on sorghum x sudan, with a base of bermudagrass, crabgrass,
and clovers. Best management practices help ensure a vegetative,
nutrient-rich diet for the animals and offer good quality hay and
ensiled haylage for when forage growth is dormant. Forages are
tested for nutrients and digestibility seasonally.
