Remember the children’s story of tortoise (turtle) and the hare (rabbit). Selecting for genetic health traits seems like a very slow, unrewarding, almost boring process, yet in less than three years you start so see the fruits of your labors now. As another generation enters the milking line, if you are breeding dairy cattle. Keep using low SCC sires with imported fertility, and in a few generations, your patience will turn “Faith into sight” and more enjoyable cattle with less health issues overall.
