Oak Creek is going on fifteen years using DNA testing to identify heritable traits in cattle for feed efficiency, marbling and tenderness. They have been using ultra-sound results for over thirty years. All this data is used as tools in making critical management and breeding decisions.

This past year Oak Creek Farms tested 100 steers and 20 heifers at Graham Cattle Company and received the harvest data with grading results of 47% premium choice, 43% choice, 3% prime and 5% select. Producing easy fleshing forage efficient heat tolerant cattle is important in the production of quality beef plus these heritable traits are passed on to the progeny.
