Add value to your non-replacement calves by using semen from beef bulls to produce dairy-beef calves that can be sold to be raised for meat.
A growing demand for New Zealand beef means cross-bred calves are fetching good prices from rearers, finishers and the meat processing industry.
Using beef semen with the bottom of your herd can:
- increase the returns from non-replacement animals
- reduce your number of bobby calves.
