Dr. Allen Bridges, University of Minnesota reproductive physiologist, discusses the impact of developmental programming on calf performance and quality. Research suggests that potential insults to the fetus during gestation can influence long-term growth and carcass traits. Bridges proposes that in the future this developing science can become a practical approach for cow-calf producers to increase efficiency, growth rates and carcass quality.
