             The purposes of this forage-based ration testing program are to provide an opportunity for breeders to evaluate genetic merit of replacement heifers produced in their herds, and to provide for sale to commercial producers a source of genetically superior heifers for purchase.

             Typically the program develops about 100 purebred and commercial heifers each year/  Of heifers enrolled in this program at least 25% will be offered for sale at the test facilities.  To qualify for sale, a heifer must be open, must have a minimum frame score of 4.5, must have a muscle score of 2.7 or higher, must be structurally sound, and must have passed a reproductive soundness exam.

             Heifers will be fed a ration of corn silage, haylage and soybean meal.  The ration will be fed at an amount to achieve a 1.5 lb. average daily gain per head.

             As performance reports become available, they will be posted here.  The sale catalog should be available during the first week of March.
