UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Dairy and livestock producers are invited to join Penn State Extension for the “Beef x Dairy: What Should Be Considered When Crossbreeding?” webinar at 11 a.m., November 24.
Crossbreeding dairy cows to beef sires is generating a lot of interest, and this webinar can answer questions regarding the best approaches for crossbreeding systems. One topic currently agreed upon by all is that dairy producers need to begin using all the data provided on beef to make selections, instead of just choosing semen that is cheap and will yield a black calf.
Topics that will be discussed include heifer replacements, associated costs, decision making tools, and other considerations.
This webinar is free to all participants. To learn more or register, visit https://extension.psu.edu/
