Reproductive Management

Effective synchronization programs offer the following advantages:
♦  cows or heifers are in estrus at a predicted time which facilitates A.I.
♦  the time required for heat detection is reduced, decreasing labor expense
♦  cycling females will conceive earlier during the breeding period.

ADDING PROFITABILITY THROUGH GENETICS
The amount of information and data available on prospective A.I. bulls and herd sires is powerful - and growing. The Spring 2015 ABS Beef Sire Directory provides producers with twenty-two EPDs and indexes on each Angus bull.

CONDITIONED FOR CONCEPTION
"Give your heifers the best of everything - reproduction efficiency, health and nutrition."
If you're serious about genetic improvement, your replacement heifers should be among the most valuable animals on the farm.

EQUATION OF REPRODUCTION: ESTRUS DETECTION
"Numerous factors contribute to the success or failure of estrous synchronization and artificial insemination. The percentage of the herd detected in estrus is a direct influencer of creating a condensed breeding season.

RELATIONSHIPS AND EDUCATION EQUAL SUCCESS
Raftopoulos Ranch in Colorado use ABS products and services to produce a high quality end product for their customers and consumers.

TIGHTER AND WIDER
A new progesterone application allows producers to narrow the window of synchronization and efficiently time-breed heifers and cows, while jump-starting anestrous females.
