Intentional and strategic buying in the beef on dairy cattle market heavily relies on one question – How are these cattle going to grow? Instead of leaving it up to chance, buyers can rely on the most credible, proven, and efficient in the game: the verified and tag identified ABS Beef InFocus calf.
United States market predictions forecast possible drought complications to affect the beef market in 2022. Based on an availability of feed resources, this makes it clear that feeding inefficient cattle simply isn’t an option in the current market. As consumer demands push toward sustainable, efficient beef – with a story like Beef InFocus – we can address this shift in needs.
To demonstrate more profitable and sustainable beef from the dairy herd, ABS partners with stockyards, calf growers, feedlots, and packers to conduct head to head trials. A trial of over 470 head of steers concluded in 2020 (figure 1), Beef InFocus lead the way in feed conversion, carcass value, cost of gain saving and total profitability. Producing more feed efficient cattle that eat less, gain more, take less days to harvest, and creating larger and faster returns in the short and long-term markets.
