Cut Through Genetic Confusion with Kelli Retallick-Riley

"When you buy Angus, you’re buying a lot of accuracy and a lot consistency because of our seedstock members and how committed they’ve been to data reporting."  — Kelli Retallick-Riley, Angus Genetics Inc. president.  A lot of commercial cattlemen have told us they chose Angus because of the breed's marketability. There's more benefit to Angus than just premium prices, though — the genetic database and the multitude of tools available to seedstock and commercial cattlemen alike. In today's episode, AGI president Kelli Retallick-Riley and Kasey chat about: Why using only genetics or phenotypes alone in selection is leaving money on the table.  How do you decide which of the many genetic tools to use? What questions you should ask your seedstock supplier. What does accuracy mean on EPDS? Why can full siblings differ so much? New tools available for commercial cattlemen. Why do EPD percent ranks matter? How do you set an optimum threshold?  Find more information to make Angus work for you in the Angus Beef Bulletin and ABB EXTRA. Make sure you're subscribed!

What Can We Do About Toxic Weeds with Jeff Clark

One of the beauties of ruminant animals is their ability to use forages, but it's our job to manage those forages for the best use possible. Managing forages well increases dry-matter intake,  decreases the need and expense of supplemental feed, and even improves herd health. However, weeds — especially toxic weeds — throw a huge wrench in all of that. Learn from Jeff Clark with Corteva AgriScience about what you can do to proactively manage your forages and keep weeds at bay. Learn more in our Greener Pastures: The Nutrition Edition issues.
