BW Changes: Fat-to-Protein values get close to parity downunder

It’s important that an animal evaluation index based on the efficiency of the bull’s offspring in converting feed to profit reflects economic reality for farmers. We know that dairy sector experiences volatility in milk prices throughout the years.

NZ Frozen Sexed Semen Trial Results

For many years, dairy farmers have been excited about the possibility of using sexed semen to drive genetic gain within their herd. It makes sense; breeding more heifer calves from the best cows while joining lower end animals to other AI options such as beef opens up more opportunities.

Inbreeding – is it really that bad?

Inbreeding can easily occur on farm either as a result of parentage identification errors or by deliberately mating closely related animals. It should be avoided by the prudent dairy farmer.
