Cabin Angus LA LLOVIZNA
Ing. Alfonso Bustillo
Having had a rich history of involvement with different exposures to obtain 11 major champions Palermo Expo among other awards, in 1999 we decided to rethink our production system. Thereafter began with the formation of the current campuses based on a strong selection from EPD and rigor in choosing a functional biotype.
The premises of selection are under control birth weight, increasing both weaning weight and final weight height keeping of animals as low as possible, the challenge is to make animals grow explosively until 18 months (age slaughter) and from there to stop the growth of adult cows to achieve low maintenance cost. Two other very important features in our program are peleche meekness and ejaculation.
Performed phenotypic selection among the three people, two decide the fate of each animal, if an arbitrator defined differences. Before selecting phenotypically EPD assesses each player.
Our breeding season is 90 days between October and December, excluding service heifer served two years between September and November.
We timed artificial insemination (TAI) all herds until 15 September, finally reviewed with pedigree bulls in individual job to which you are choosing groups of 100 cows per bull of which there is a percentage that is pregnant by TAI (Al touch differs origin of pregnancy). The calved after September 15 are mounted directly to natural, individual service every 50 cows a bull.

Those born from September 15 to spend 24 months service and sold at the annual auction, the pass phenotypically undesirable recipients for embryo transfer program in which we made 50 pregnancies per year.
