Genetic Selection


No matter how complex the gamut of information on breeding decisions available to producers, a simple and timely review of the basics can often help provide better understanding of the tools and processes. The Iowa Beef Center provides these resources as simple and easy to follow reviews of definitions and proper use of performance information, or EPDs. We hope your operation finds value from this page and we welcome your feedback.
