A4 Advantage Program

Just think of this program as a kind of branded program for replacement heifers. In today's beef cattle industry, branded programs are the main topic of discussion. It gives the buyer assurance that these cattle are at least 50% Akaushi. Retain your replacement females and embed the influence of Akaushi within your existing herd creating an increased market value with every new generation. With the Akaushi A4 Program, breed up to purebred Akaushi in just four generations.
