Breed up is top of mind for every rancher this time of year. Discussion points such as getting more cows bred, getting more caught in the first cycle, getting more 2 year olds to settle are all conversations happening around rustic kitchen tables on ranches across North America. And rightly so, these metrics are not only key to the success of the overall operation, but they’re indicators of the size of our calf check come fall.
