“Canada cannot afford to be complacent with regard to its animal genetic resources.  Erosion of variability has already been extreme in poultry. Rapid change is occurring in the genetics of dairy cattle.  There are conservation concerns about beef cattle and other domestic species. There is an urgent need for Canadians to undertake conservation action as both short – and long term insurance against changing needs.”  Dr. R.D. Crawford, Department of Animal and Poultry Science, University of Saskatchewan

Canada ne peut pas se permettre de rester indifférent à ses ressources génétiques animales.  L’érosion de la variabilité est déjà extrême dans le cas des volailles. La génétique des vaches laitières subit des changements rapides.  Il y a des préoccupations en matière de la conservation des bovins de boucherie et d’autres espèces domestiques.  Il est urgent de prendre des mesures de conservation pour répondre aux besoins changeants à court et à long terme.  Dr Roy Crawford - Département des Sciences des animaux et de la volaille Université de Saskatchewan 1992…encore plus important aujourd’hui

A Milking Shorthorn bull calf, sired by ValleyMaids Joe born at Motherwell Historic Homestead, SK in June. The breeding was made possible with the use of semen from the HLC semen inventory. His dam is a second freshener and classified VG as a first freshener before moving to SK.
