Considerations for Successful Heifer Development with Lee Jones
Show Notes

Did you know that developing replacement females to be long-lasting contributors to your herd begins well before weaning? 
 
Today’s host Shauna Hermel visited with Lee Jones of Boehringer Ingelheim to discuss successful heifer development strategies and why considering protocols well in advance of weaning is advantageous for cattlemen, whether purchasing or developing their own replacements.

They discuss: 

  • The building blocks of heifer development 
  • What is fetal programming
  • How careful development of heifers can have far-reaching results
  • And more!
