Back in the fall of 2010, we calved out our first set of two year olds on the Derrick Ranch near Fort Rock. While calving, the heifers grazed dry native rangeland with the mature cows. Many of the first calf heifers sired by some notable AI bulls failed to breed back. ThedaughtersofNetPresentValuebredbackandremained in the herd. This was an expensive, but very valuable test of the genetics we are propagating. After this test, we continued to use Net Present Value along with other sires that also excel in fertility and fleshing ability like Final Answer and Game Day. We don’t just talk about the importance these maternal traits, we select and testforit. Your selection of seed stock can only improve your bottom line if it improves your herd’s fertility, calving ease, and 7th Annual “First Choice” functionality.
