The Show-Me-Select Replacement Heifer Program uses the latest research on health, nutrition and reproductive science to ensure Missouri counties continue to be national leaders in providing quality beef. The program focuses on Missouri's farmers and is dependent upon active participation from regional extension livestock specialists and local veterinarians, each of which are critical components of the agricultural sector of this state.
This program is unique in that it is an educational program targeted at improving production efficiency through increased use of existing technology, coupled with the marketing component.

Improved heifer development programs through a Total Quality Management approach
Increased marketing opportunities for and added value for Missouri-raised heifers
