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 2012 ABS Beef Sire Directory provides producers with twenty-seven 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.
