As a matter of fact I did grow up on a dairy. Even milked 3 times a day. Over 40 year experience as an AI technician.
Some people argue just to argue. The information that we report is correct. Look at the Minnesota report, did you see where the Holsteins had a 9% stillbirth rate? That is fact, unless you want to try to say that it is a lie.
The breeds that we represent continue to grow, with many producers breeding up to purebred status. So many studies don't want to include our breeds because our breeds would show much better. There was a trial on the crosses that was done a few years ago in California, but many didn't or refused to believe the results. This Minnesota study with different herds shows that these breeds do perform very well.
But again there will be some that will still want to discredit the results and not believe them. To each his own.
