We value and use performance records, EPDs and other tools available to assist us breeding cattle. However, selecting cattle is more than just reading numbers. In our quest for balanced trait cattle, we keep keen pressure on the necessary production traits of fertility, longevity, udder quality, disposition, structural soundness, production efficiency and fleshing ability.

Many of these traits may be difficult to quantify, but the remain necessarily important and can be assessed by observation and experience. We refer to these characteristics as Convenience Traits . Consequently, we extensively research sires for use in our program with all of the important economic traits in mind. When we find one that meets our standards, we use him over a period of years so that his contribution is significant and the predictability of our cattle is improved.
