In beef production, focus on the profit drivers. They are fertility, growth, quality and efficiency. In our program of 10 May, John Devonport of Devlan Limousines talks about economic traits that affect your herd and how to measure them. You must have a sound breeding plan.

Dr Japie van der Westhuizen, Managing Director of SA Studbook talks about breeding goals. Your breeding goals must be written, and measuring is key. Breeding is an investment and without proper planning you will lose money and time.
