a) Instead of mixing a variety of types from within a diverse breed to do all things for all people, our direction remains toward stabilizing a type to be a more identical "breed" to do a specific thing for a specific segment ....better.

b) Instead of selecting cattle with the most different EPD or highest ratios, our direction is to select those cattle with the least difference from the preferred type.

c) Instead of exploiting the effects of heterosis to improve marketability by avoiding close breeding, our direction is to reduce the effects of heterosis to improve sustainability by close breeding.

d)  Instead of trying to win registered production contests at all costs, our direction is to improve commercial production efficiency by reducing costs.

e)  Instead of breeding by the numbers to change averages, our direction is to learn
