Since our genetics are always getting younger and new technology is always changing the idea of what perfection is in cattle genetics, the Vintage ET program will continue to increase in focus as the future shows us new ways to design the ultimate in Angus genetics. With Brad at the helm, our ET program has never worked better and with 100 donors to work with, we always have a supply of new frozen eggs for sale.
