Not only is the Simmental breed successful in the show ring, but Simmental genetics also are versatile for the commercial cattlemen.
“The Simmental breed has been very progressive and have implemented leading science behind their genetics to drive the breed organization to have one of the most accurate Expected Progeny Differences systems,” said Luke Bowman, Simmental Director of Member Events.
The Simmental breed uses the IGS Multi-breed Genetic Evaluation powered by BOLT for their genetic evaluation. This evaluation gives breeders the opportunity to compare their Simmental genetics with other breeds.
By incorporating science and strong cow families both commercial and seedstock Simmental producers are able to enhance their operations, said Simmental enthusiast Doug Parke.
