Title: Simmental- Red Angus joint venture?
Post by: aj on May 23, 2012, 10:10:45 PM
My Red Angus journal is advertising a seminar or something July 22,23,24th in Manhattan,Ks. The Red Angus and Simmentals....both nationally and state wise are combining dna or 50k chip information or something. Seems like I've heard something about it but I kinda blanked on it. Anyone going or anyone care to explain? Is this across breed epd's or what?

I think this is the future...whereas all cattle of all breeds are indexed against a common base.   I've been pushing for this as long as I've known of epds.
