  • A Valuable Experience by Chris Martin Chris Martin As a general rule, I don't like politics. I know just enough to know there's a lot I don't know, so I'm more comfortable talking about just about anything else. Take the weather, for instance. I can usually weigh in with an opinion about the weather. May 31 through June 9 marked the 2017 Young Cattlemen's Conference (YCC) hosted by NCBA (National Cattlemen's Beef Association). YCC is an annual pilgrimage attended by representatives from each affiliate of NCBA ages 25 to 50 who receive a comprehensive, "gate to plate" overview of the beef industry.

  • $20 Genomic test including parentage www.simmental.org/chr   You've come to expect ASA to leverage all its resources to provide the industry with the best prices and most robust science.  The Cowherd DNA Roundup is a perfect example of a breed association that works for you.     Breeders who submit a DNA sample on their entire cowherd can get genomically enhanced EPDs and parentage for $20/test.  Like how that sounds?  There's more!  Breeders who submit cow weights with either body conditions scores or hip heights get an additional $5 off per test - an amazing price of $15/sample. This project marks a major investment from the ASA towards research and development.  The $15 test is only available for the first 15,000 samples with phenotypes submitted.  There is no estimate of when the results will be available on samples submitted.  Donor cows and bulls do not qualify.  No additional DNA tests are available with this offer.
