First-calf heifers experience more calving difficulty than cows. That’s why Beefbooster developed a light, small-framed bull designed specifically for breeding to yearling heifers.
With an M3 heifer bull mated to a yearling heifer, you can reduce the cost of labour needed to assist calving heifers, and avoid the loss associated with delayed re-breeding and lower conception following difficult births. Plus, you’ll also benefit from increased calf and heifer survival rates.
The Beefbooster selection standards are so rigorous that only a select number of Beefbooster bull calves qualify as seedstock. We test the performance of every animal to determine its genetic merit, both on the ranch at pre-weaning, and at the test station during post-weaning.
Beefbooster uses economic selection indexes to weigh traits according to their economic importance. This provides a way to balance selection of traits — giving you more predictable profitability.
