Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta April W3 THE LCTHMIDGE MfRALD 17 Testing program helps build herds The production of better beef producing animals is the role of the Canadian Charolais Association's conception to consumer program. In the livestock industry, certain characteristics and growth traits are passed on to future generations through the male species. Using this principle, the association has established a large selection of Char- olais bulls to test in the C to C program. By testing the bulls on a large number of female animals, the genetic traits of the bulls can be re- corded. This allows a cattle producer to select a bull to give him the type of offspring he wants- Producers throughout Canada can offer their breeding animals to the association to be bred to the beef cattle bulls on the C to C test program. Bob Day, performance for the associa- tion, is in charge of the program. He has on record all the bulls in the test program and all the herds of animals which have participated. The records of the participating herds are cal- culated by computer and the genetic performance of .the various bulls is evaluated. Through this series of records, persons wanting to use a Charolais bull can choose the type of bull he wants according to the traits exhibited in past years by the offspring of that particular bull. Then the producer can compare his calves which were conceived by a bull on the C to C program with calves which were bred by other animals. He can also compare his calves to other calves on the pro- gram. The association provides bull semen to the pro- ducer. The producer, is given a record book and identifjcation tags. Any interested producer wanting further informa- tion can contact the association. Mr. Day said a herd of at least 70 cows is needed to qualify for the program. Tattoo for identification A heifer at Alfred Vaage ranch gets its ear tattooed whh the herd number for positive identification during the Conception to Consumer program. The heifer will be bred ogain and then her will be judged according to weight birth and weight gain. This allows the rancher to deter- mine whether or not he wants to keep the heifer or to change the sire. WATCH FOR Fairfield Appliance Ser- vices Ltd.
