Cattle consultant Dick Whale will speak on selecting the next generation of profitable cattle this month at Young, NSW.
Topics to be discussed will be future breeding strategies, heifer selection, and breed trait desirability selection tier one and two preferences.
Industry preference may not be influenced by the next “hot” bull.
