Maternal Matters.

Maternal traits are incredibly important when breeding cattle, as they can have a significant impact on a herd's productivity and profitability. A cow's maternal traits are largely responsible for her ability to raise healthy and robust calves, ensuring that they thrive and grow into marketable animals. Factors such as calving ease, milking ability, fertility, and motherly instinct are all incredibly important, and selecting for these traits can lead to more efficient and successful breeding programs.

By prioritizing maternal traits, Highland producers can establish healthier, more productive animals and ultimately, increase their bottom line.
