|Welcome El Garcia!|
We now have a bull! His name is, fully, Cutting Edge Pier El Garcia. We primarily use artificial insemination. El Garcia is a compliment to the A.I.
A.I. has become much more common in dairies for a number of reasons chief among them the access to genetic varieties and being able to pick particular bulls based on his progeny (good milk quality or quantity or show standards). For instance, we choose bulls who have a record progeny with good milk qualities for cheese instead of a cow who was the largest quantity producer or a blue ribbon winner.
