Artificial Insemination of Beef Cattle
Grant Award: $6,000
Bobby is increasing his ability to artificially inseminate cattle with top quality bulls; improving growth trait records; and enhancing marketability of his beef. He is purchasing a portable head gate with an AI cage and scales; feed bunks and feeding equipment; and working facilities.
With these improvements, he will artificially inseminate a much larger percentage of his cattle and market the cattle with superior genetics to other farmers. Bobby also markets beef to individuals in the local area.
