Abstract

The Iowa State University beef cattle breeding project was designed to develop two selection lines of beef cattle for use as a research base to answer questions that influence genetic improvement. The project was started in 1996 and is being conducted at Rhodes (central Iowa) and McNay (southern Iowa) research and demonstration farms.
