[Podcast] Learning the Genetic Merit Scorecard - with Troy Marshall

Published on 28 October 2021

David, Paul and Carrie visit with Troy Marshall, director of commercial relations for the American Angus Association, about the Genetic Merit Scorecard and its use for predicting the performance on a pen of calves, and how the scorecard adds value with higher participation among producers participating.  

The hosts also discuss growing concerns about the U.S. supply chain for production and manufacturing, and what they’re prepared to keep and avoid for upcoming Thanksgiving.
