WHY ARE THEY SUPERIOR?
Livestock evaluated using the
THE CLASSIC LIVESTOCK MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
are superior because the system highlights and incorporates the two
critical factors essential for livestock production perfection.
* BREEDING STOCK * OFFSPRING
* PERFORMANCE * QUALITY
- The ability to breed animals with the same characteristics within each trait on a repeatable basis.
- To achieve this, those traits that are going to give the most desirable outcome need to be identified.
- BALANCE OF:
- PRODUCTION PRACTICES/SYSTEMS
- Balance is critical between the conformation traits in each animal.
- It is also necessary between all aspects of the livestock business you are conducting – environment, breeding, feeding, management etc.
- Balance is needed between the objective scientific world and the subjective practical world.
- Consistency and balance are of critical importance to the future of this industry and to ignore
one or the other is to do so at one’s peril and both need to be respected as
- Much of the practical knowledge that has been passed down over the
generations has now been scientifically supported.
- Some is still to be researched and maybe there are some things that just don’t have scientifically provable bases. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it is not important to the industry.
HOW TO ACHIEVE BALANCE AND CONSISTENCY
- The CLASSIC LIVESTOCK MANAGEMENT SYSTEM will do this for your livestock enterprise.
- It will select those animals that will achieve this goal and are therefore superior animals in your enterprise.
- The system will identify animals that are consistent in all that they produce.
- Their maternal traits will be to the fore and when this happens they will produce good offspring that will either be great mothers themselves or produce tender, tasty meat products.
For centuries, man has been domesticating and breeding animals to assist in sustaining humanity. One of the reasons we, as a species, are still in existence is because of the experience and knowledge that has been passed down through generations about how to manage our livestock in a domesticated environment. This experience and knowledge, until very recent times, has been of a practical, sensory based nature.
The system is not the ultimate solution to the production of superior livestock, but is a living, growing system that is part of a wider evolution of advancement for the industry.
- THE CLASSIC LIVESTOCK MANAGEMENT SYSTEM has evolved from a solid base consisting of generations of experience and knowledge in the livestock industry.
