Genetic Evaluation for the Australian Beef Industry -Towards New Horizons
This three year project (BFGEN.100), conducted by the Animal Genetics and Breeding Unit (AGBU), has contributed significantly to the increased rate of genetic improvement for profitability of Australian beef cattle primarily through the development and enhancement of the BREEDPLAN and BreedObject systems. The latest estimate of beef industry rate of genetic progress for commercial profitability has continued to increase and is likely to double in the next few years. Australian beef producers have access to the state-of-the-art genetic evaluation technologies, and the project has ensured these technologies and associated knowledge were delivered and implemented in breeding programs throughout Australia.
