Spayed Heifers

Spayed Heifers. Good or bad idea?

 

From the viewpoint of feeding out, does the increased feed efficiency justify the increased purchase price?

 

I read an article that was very positive toward spaying heifers, but it also mentioned that 1% death loss was common.

 

Just curious to read what other people’s viewpoints and experiences were.
