The chicken and the egg seem like such an age-old conundrum and one which many find themselves trying to solve. How does this silly chicken apply to cattle production?

Really, it’s all about the numbers, percent conception, number of live calves on the ground and then zeros on the ends of our checks! Check out this article that talks these critical numbers and how we can make the most of this fall season.
