3 Sire summaries per year

2008 will be the beginning of another change in the USDA Dairy sire summaries.

We have had summaries 2 times per year and recently they have been 4 times per year.

Why do we change things around? When there were 2 per year, everyone got all excited about “proofs”. Then when there were 4 per year, the “proofs” happened so often that no-one seemed to care. What will we do now that there will be 3 per year. Maybe we will be kind-of excited.

These proof  frequencies had some effect on embry sales and youngsire departments in the studs.

What do these changes do to your decision making process? Anything? or do you just go with the flow?
