Morris dairy crossbreeding with beef genetics in fourth of its cows
MORRIS -- Riverview LLP with its 30,000 dairy cows is trying a new twist in its breeding program: Beef genetics.
The change so far is implemented only in its Jersey dairy site at Riverview Dairy in Morris, which accounts for a fourth of the company's cows. The idea is to breed only the best cows for dairy heifers and breed the rest for beef production.
