|Genetic progress occurs through the
PROPAGATION OF GENETIC
"OUTLIERS". Genetic outliers are found by applying
SELECTION pressure on
LARGE POPULATIONS of cattle.
Very FEW HERDS of registered
cattle HAVE large
ENOUGH NUMBERS to provide
truly meaningful selection opportunity.
The Profit Maker Bulls program enables the participating breeders to POOL their bull calves in order to have INDIVIDUAL BREEDERS calves COMPETE with a LARGER POPULATION than would otherwise be possible.
This competition takes two forms:
Both comparisons provide valuable feedback to the individual breeder. This FEEDBACK ENABLES the individual breeders to make CONTINUAL IMPROVEMENT in their breeding program.
In addition, the COMPETITION of the individual bull calves WITHIN the LARGER POPULATION being tested provides MEANINGFUL SELECTION OPPORTUNITY. In this way, some of the best young calves IDENTIFY themselves as that next POTENTIAL OUTLIER. The one that we are all searching for to take that next step in our ONGOING QUEST for genetic improvement.
Our GENETIC ALLIANCE BREEDERS include some of the most DEDICATED NO-NONSENSE PERFORMANCE BREEDERS in the industry. They apply STRINGENT SELECTION AND CULLING practices within the individual herds. COWS are routinely CULLED FOR SOUNDNESS, UDDER QUALITY, FERTILITY, SUB-STANDARD PRODUCTION AND DISPOSITION.
Genetic Alliance Breeders utilize ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION and EMBRYO TRANSFER to ACCELERATE GENETIC ADVANCEMENT in their herds.
Some of the BULLS being heavily USED across the breed THROUGH A.I. are OWNED BY our GENETIC ALLIANCE BREEDERS.
Participation in the Profit Maker Bulls program is both a CHALLENGE and an OPPORTUNITY.
