Cattle producers purchase bulls on only one or a few days of the year, but the effect of their bull selection decision will last for generations within their herd.
The BullSELECT workshop is a one day workshop which covers how to use BREEDPLAN information when making selection decisions and purchasing bulls. This is achieved by a combination of easy to understand practical discussions and yard demonstrations.
Specifically, the BullSELECT Workshop will include:
• Discussion on the effective selection of breeding cattle.
• Overview of the genetic selection tools available.
• Practical demonstration of how to use EBVs and selection indexes when choosing bulls, including a mock helmsman auction.
For further information, including a proposed workshop program, please see the BullSELECT Workshop brochure below.
