dc.description Artificial insemination and crossbreeding are two methods of cattle breeding in an attempt to increase to performance. This article discusses a five year study that was designed to compare both crossbred and straightbred breeding management systems using both natural and artificial insemination methods. The major factors which contribute to a reduction in profitability are conception rate, faculty, equipment, semen and flushing feed expenses and labor. Crossbreeding under those conditions of this experiment, resulted in heavier weaning weights and a higher gross and net return per head of cattle.
