When 4B Livestock was created we were asked to deliver a calf model that was healthy, smaller than available breeds commonly used, and hardy with a docile nature. With our background in the agriculture field we felt this was a request well within our scope.
The bovine model we provide for biomedical research is smaller than the common beef breeds available and is a much slower growing calf. This translates into a better survivability of your chronic study protocols.
4B Livestock’s bovine model is a genetically smaller specimen. Since this model is genetically predisposed to be smaller this results in a more mature model that will fit your required weight ranges for your protocols. 4B Livestock owns and breeds this model for your facility. We also have access to healthy dairy/beef cross models.
