I think it will do and more besides, it will be flushed and the embryos used in multiple recipients and the progeny sold on for breeding. Do that a few times and that one heifer could have 15+ calves on the ground in 12-18 months time.
I suppose it is a kind of self fulfilling prophecy as paying that price ensures that there are people who will pay a big price for the progeny just because the mother was a big price. No guarantee that she will breed mind these pedigree hfrs can be tricky especially when they are as well fed as she has been.

True, no guarantee that they come out alive either.in fact so many things can go wrong it's a massive gamble in my eyes.

I saw an advert on Facebook last night, for semen from her full brother.

I dare say she will have lots of full sibs via ET already.

I expect their recipient dams will cope just fine.

Update on the Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
