Why Use LIC Genetics

When making your breeding decisions this year, you need to be doing so with the aim of having the best progeny possible entering your herd in three years time.

Three easy steps can help you maximise the benefits you will gain from your second biggest farm asset:

1. The cows you breed from: Good culling decisions this autumn will ensure you have the best group of cows to breed from this coming spring

2. The bulls you use: Genetic gain contributes up to 60% of the productivity gains we see on farm. A single cow may only leave behind one offspring in her lifetime, but a bull could potentially leave dozens on your farm. Your yearly bull selections have the ability to have the biggest impact on future years’ revenue

3. The calves you rear: Always make sure you breed enough replacements to give yourself selection discretion; this is the perfect way to leverage your herd asset

Bringing the calving date forward for your late cycling and return animals will improve their productivity in the following season.

SGL (short gestation length) bulls will enable this with ease.

NB: Not available in every country. Contact your local LIC representative for more details.
