Beef breeding programs: Is CRYSTALYX a fit for you?

Beef breeding programs, and all the components therein, can be a broad and complex subject. The definitions we use, as well as the names we

such as conception rates and pregnancy rates, or fertility and reproductive efficiency — actually mean two different things. Likewise, breeding

programs are not really breeding systems, and vice versa. Once again, this subject varies as much as or perhaps even more than the total genetic

selection criteria beef producers must choose from. Programs can vary by selection criteria, whether animals are artificially or naturally bred, estrus

synchronization, embryo transfer, breeding seasons and length, etc.
