Good Bulls get better

When it comes to finding Good Bulls to use over Australian dairy herds, they keep getting better and better, as demonstrated by the April 2017 release of Australian Breeding Values (ABVs).

This release has improvements in reliabilities across all traits, giving dairy farmers even more confidence in their bull choices.

The increases in reliability came from the addition of genotypes for 30,000 females in 100 herds into the reference population, through the GINFO project.

Ginfo is a major delivery of the DairyFutures CRC in its last six months of operation. Ginfo is a collaboration involving the DairyFutures CRC, ADHIS, Holstein Australia, Jersey Australia and the Victorian Government (DEDJTR).
