The B+LNZ Genetics Dairy Beef Progeny Test aims to improve the quality of dairy beef calves in the industry by identifying and enabling widespread use of superior beef bulls that deliver value-add to all stages of the supply chain.
Anna Boyd (Beef + Lamb NZ Genetics) and Charlotte Gray (LIC Beef Product Specialist) will discuss the key learnings from the progeny test, current and future challenges, and how dairy farmers can make the most out of the opportunity to use good beef bulls over their lower-performing animals.
The session covers:
- Ease of calving and short gestation for the dairy farmer
- Excellent growth rates for rearers and growers
- High quality carcase attributes for the finisher
A recording of this webinar will be uploaded soon.
