FULTON, Mo. — The University of Missouri Extension’s Show-Me-Select Replacement Heifer Program has announced its upcoming spring sales dates: May 20 in Vienna and Carthage, May 21 in Kingsville, and June 4 in Palmyra.
MU’s Extension’s Show-Me-Select Replacement Heifer Program uses the latest research on health, nutrition, genetics and reproductive science to ensure Missouri producers continue to be national leaders in providing quality beef, according to Anita Ellis, University of Missouri Extension livestock specialist and sale coordinator for central Missouri.
Specialists meet with producers and their local veterinarian for three different heifer checks throughout the year to see if the heifers continue to qualify. Program objectives are:
- Improved heifer development programs through a total quality management strategy;
- Increased marketing opportunities and added value for Missouri-raised heifers; and
- Creation of reliable sources of quality replacement heifers based on management, reproduction and genetics.
Producers interested in the Show-Me-Select Replacement Heifer Program should call their regional MU Extension livestock specialist or visit muext.us/SMS-sales.
