National Beef Genetics Extension Strategy

Increased knowledge of genetics underlying profit and functional traits in Australian beef cattle presents a significant opportunity to increase rate of genetic gain through extension and implementation of such knowledge in breeding programs. A key component of such a model is increasing the understanding and ability of beef cattle breeders to utilise knowledge and tools to cost effectively increase the rate of genetic gain. There is a clear need to have different strategies for seedstock and commercial producers. A strategy focused on effective extension to various segments within the beef industry is detailed for consideration.
