Mahuta Ocean 8073

Mahuta Ocean 8073 is doing extremely well in the dairy-beef progeny trial.

BLG and Lic are running a multi-breed progeny trial to attempt to identify the best bulls for dairy beef production. The first crop of calves have had data analyzed and Mahuta Ocean has come out as a leader for short gestation and early growth.

Of all the breeds [including Angus} there is only one bull with a shorter gestation and his progeny had the highest 200-day weight of any bull. These results are very important for dairy beef as short gestation means more days for cows in milk and early growth means earlier weaning which reduces costs.

More news will follow as data becomes available.
