Project

I am currently working on a beef cow and heifer fertility project.  I am working with Dr. Brian Kinghorn and his program, MateSel, to appropriately select and mate sires and dams, trying to avoid any deleterious lethal recessive matings.  This should improve embryo survival, resulting in earlier pregnancies and shorter calving intervals. Finally, the cows and heifers should have more longevity in the herd.
