A Little About Angus Genetic Principles

     For an Angus Breeder to get a grasp on breeding management, it is almost imperative that he learn some basic angus genetic principles.

     Learning how genetics can affect economically important traits of Angus Cattle, or any other breed of beef cattle, can help a cattle farmer in making wise selection decisions when picking his seedstock animals. The goal should be to learn which traits can be altered through breeding management and which traits should be altered by other management techniques.

    The Agriculture Universities have done research and produced many publications to help you in this area. Although the publications may not be breed specific the information will apply to most all beef cattle breeds. One of those publications titled simply "Genetic Principles" by Darrh Bullok, University of Kentucky is available here as PDF file.
