Heifer Development Webinar Series Available for Streaming

BROOKINGS, S.D. – The live Heifer Development Webinar Series, Building Your Genetic Base, is available to beef producers. This three-part series is presented by SDSU Extension.


“I encourage cattle producers to stream this series if they are interested in receiving information and insight on the many steps which go into designing the genetic framework of the cowherd, starting with heifer development,” said Taylor Grussing, SDSU Extension Cow/Calf Field Specialist.


The cost to purchase the three-part seminar is $15. Webinar is available on iGrow.org in the download store.


Along with Grussing, the three-part series features Joseph Cassady, SDSU Animal Science Department Head and Professor; Brandon Peterson, Owner and Operator of Peterson Angus and Troy Hadrick, Commercial Cow/Calf Producer.


The presenters focus on the following:

  1. How to use EPD’s (expected progeny difference) when making herd sire and genetic selection decisions;
  2. How genomic technology can be used to make faster genetic progress in cow/calf herds;
  3. How genetic selection can be managed differently based on heifer development and herd goals.

Contact information for each presenter is available in their respective webinar.

If you have any questions about this webinar series or annual heifer development programming, contact Grussing through e-mail at Taylor.Grussing@sdstate.edu.
