Robert Whitacre is a professional artificial inseminator (AI) of cattle. He does this work with my son Matthew Davenport, who runs the Hollin Farm operation. We are breeding cows that have calved in October and November, and using semen from the Wye Plantation in Maryland. Owned and run by the University of Maryland as a research center, this farm has the oldest herds of Angus cattle in the USA. We are hoping for off-spring that will do better on grass than the kind of cattle favored by modern industrial feed lots.
