Most of my beef breeding has been done under extensive conditions, where using AI extensively is impractical, bulls find the cycling cows and heifers in the heavily woded areas, and by using bulls adapted to the conditions, the best adapted produce the greater nuber of calves, which helps in the selection of easy keeping genetics. Having said that, I did use AI to introduce the bloodlines I wanted before closing my herd, so it does remain a valuable tool with many applications.
