Funston, a reproductive physiologist with University of Nebraska – Lincoln, explains numerous factors toward efficiency in repro rates, heifer selection and reproductive success.

Shockley, an ag economist with University of Kentucky, highlights what’s the spin on carbon credit sell-offs, and how livestock producers should be prepared (and careful) when approached about selling them.
