EXPERTS AT SHORTENING THE GENERATION INTERVAL

Northeast Bovine Genetic Improvement Association

VEAL: The existing veal market is 90:10 Male:Female and it would take a 4 fold increase for veal lbs to equal 1% of the by weight BEEF. After genomic testing (Genomic Testing and Sexed semen (An increase in the Female/Male ratio) go hand in hand). Sexed semen has a huge potential to flood the market with replacements and milk. It intuitively obvious that reversing the sex ratio to 10:90 male:female and quadrupling lower carcass weight veal lbs VS that of the carcass wt of finished beef would go a long way toward stabilizing milk, dairy replacements and beef prices.

WE take care of our calves! OUR FEMALE Calves! They have never been through the stress of putting on a trailer, being exposed to other calves in a sale barn or having been transported to a special veal raising facility. It the view of the author that a 3 week old GENOMIC TESTED CALF is the best of calves to be placed ON DAIRY FARM RAISED SPECIAL VEAL.
