So, Troy Marshall thought the American cattle breeders concentrated too much on optimization to the detriment of increased marbling, muscle, etc., in 2002?

MS, in the vicinity of wondering what cows Troy Marshall was looking at in 2002.

From a genetic standpoint, the goal has been and always will be to find those genetics that defy genetic antagonisms.


Limits and thresholds exist for all sorts of traits and when one assigns selection pressure to traits, certain populations may be so acceptable in certain areas that they can be ignored in essence.


I think the above two quotes just show that he did not know what he was talking about in 2002. I doubt that he has learned much since.
