Know all about Composite, Heterosis and Crossbreeding Program

by Andrew Stella SEO EXECUTIVE
The relation of the composites and purebreds cannot be discarded in the current scenario of beef breeding. Combining, planning and selection of chosen traits from more than two breeds for developing one single package can be a fascinating idea. But the target behind combining the breeds for creating composites is related to the retention of hybrid vigor in upcoming days. In this way, to the beef farms, crossbreed is not a matter of concern as only purebreds can only be generated.


Know about the Beef Farm

The history of the beef breeding farm is deeply rooted in Texas and 1931’s development got its first recognition in 1954. Known to one of the top breed registries in the country, the new breeding approaches do not depend on any external genetics. The homozygous beef breed only focuses on the growth capability of hybrid only.

The farm now provides frozen embryos collected from the renowned pairings and the pairings include the best of the lot including Escalade, L Bar Habanero, L Bar dams and L Bar En Fuego. One can get the registration number by paying a visit to the official site for free.

And the frozen semen which has passed the special bull performance test. L Bar Beefmaster is a well known herd and its genetics are selected for the frozen semen service. The premium quality genetics are ready to be shipped to any part of the world.

Composite and Crossbred in Beef Industry

The beef industry usually focuses on purebred but the composites and crossbreds are also taking over the market nowadays. The Beef Cattle is proving its esteemed value and paternal, individual and maternal are three types of heterosis. Among these three, the paternal one gets attention at the last.

If there is a need for introducing heterosis in the market, it can be initiated by using one hybrid bull. Then the maternal heterosis is added in a practical way without influencing large fluctuations during the generation. For minimizing the herd, the four-breed composite is a wise decision and there will be less heterosis coming out of the bull.

Things Considered for the Program

For the crossbred Bulls, there are certain things followed for establishing the breeding program.

1.) Defining market condition and fixing the objectives related to breeding 
2.) Deciding the breeding type for evaluating performance for achieving the best in the environment 
3.) Setting the nutritional level and management plan for successfully carrying out the 4.)Crossbreeding
5.) Checking the current market trends and environment

The program is generally utilized by the commercial beef producers and there are five of them, Backcross, two bred cross, rotational cross, composite breed and three breed cross are their examples.
