“We’ve tried other programs in the past, but when you find what works you stick to it. With AI, I basically bred out all the difficulties. I wanted uniformity, but I’ve improved udder quality and structure in the herd. I also have a tighter calving season, and with AI to calving ease sires, I can calve without having to watch; and less labor is always great.” Mark Fulton, Fulton Ranch, SD “AI gives us the total package. We can breed a heifer designed like we want with predictability. We used to use young sires, now we use proven sires because the reliability and consistency is something we can’t put a price on. (Those heifers) stay in the herd and don’t fall out. ” Jerry Kuenning, Imperial, NE ABS is the industry’s source for proven, profit-driven results.
