The article focuses on the financial benefits of selecting high beef value bulls to farmers based on a study conducted by the Harper Adams University College in Shropshire, England. The higher daily liveweight gain of the progeny of a Limousin bull contributed to the difference in income. It concludes that estimated breeding values can provide accurate measurement of the genetic merit of an animal. The use of high beef value bulls can improve the carcass quality of progeny.
