Beef performance programs have come a long way since their start after World War II as a means of within-herd improvement. Now performance programs can be used to rank young animals on all the available information across all the herds of a breed. Opportunity exists to design and conduct performance programs that can be used to promote the breed, enhance management decision making, and make real genetic change in the breed.
