There are some costs associated with ,perfmnce records. The first step in performance testing is identification of all  in t berd. Earta@ are the most popular device. The major factors needed for identifying ind/vidual animals are ease of read and per- manence. Calves should be tagged when born, preferable with a nun,.r identifying them with their mothers. Other costs associated with perfr testing are for gathering information and calculating data. The amount of information used in a performance testing program depends upon the goals of the cattleman. Because most cow . calf operations sell calves at weaning, weaning weight is an economic trait which should be used in the testing program. Research has shown that weaning weight is a greater reflection of the cow's per- fonnance than of the sire's. Performance testing iden* tffies beth superior cows and low producers. It creates a history on each cow. Thus, nmnagement b able to utilize the records to determine which cows should be kept and which should be culled. Performance records also are useful in selection of replacement heifers. Heifers from superior cows are more likely to pass on deskable traits than heifers born to inferior cows. Performance records allow buyers of breeding animals to see how an animal performs within a herd. The purchaser will have some idea of how an animal will perform even under different conditions. More commercial cattlemen are using performance testing in today's rapidly changing beef industry. This trend probably will continue on ranches that enable the manager to identify cattle within a degree of accuracy. Service will start year end survey The Montana Crop and Livestock Reporting Service in Helena will conduct its most important end - of - the - season crop survey starting in mid - October according to Daniel L. Herbert, state statistician. About one-half the State's farm and ranch operators will receive questionnaires asking for acreage and production of 1973 crops. The results of this survey will be used to develop county, state and national statistics. Published reports will be released Dec. 10 for fectlve marketing -- especially so this year with grain marketing and prices depen- dent upon the "open market." "Quostiormaires submitted to this office are kept strictly confidential -- no persons or governmental agencies can obtain access to individual information," emphasized Herbert.
