Fewer measurements, greater gains

Fewer measurements, greater gains

Contrary to what has been claimed for the longest time, it is possible to measure your heifers only a few times during growth with good results, provided it is done at strategic times. Measuring heifers is demanding and requires a lot of time and patience. So why do all advisors insist on this point? Because it's important! But it is possible to simplify the process and measure heifers at a few key moments according to specific objectives.
