Gilbrea Farm’s breeding program uses established technology, Expected Progeny Difference (EPDs), thorough phenotypic evaluations, and leading AI bulls. In addition we retain a high percentage of our heifers as replacements. This balanced approach has accelerated the advancement of our herd quality.
Extensive data collection and analysis allows us to benchmark our herd’s progress. Genetic evaluations provide us with EPDs.
Our breeding program utilizes a combination of Artificial Insemination (AI), Embryo Transfers (ET), and premium natural service sires. These methods give us access to the best available genetics to produce quality high $Profit bulls and heifers.
