Noland Farm Place
Grant Award: $3,000 — Improving Cattle Genetics and Structure
The purchase of one purebred Angus bull with enhanced genetics, structures and Expected Progeny Difference (EPD’s) enables Noland Farm Place to produce calves with improved genetics to better meet the current market demands.
The new bull allows the farm to breed their own genetically enhanced replacement heifers, as well as puts a more desirable calf on the market selling for a higher dollar amount. As early as 2012, without increasing the number of their cows (currently 20), they plan to sell 20 stocker calves at $600 a head.
