Breeders backing science

AngusPRO – Leaders in their field…
24 March 2022

There comes a time in every commercial cattle farmer’s life that they get to thinking about profitability and how they can better their breeding program to ensure they’re getting the most out of their cattle.

AngusPRO are a group of New Zealand Angus breeders that encompass over 40% of New Zealand’s registered Angus cattle.  They take a scientific approach to breeding — that means they make decisions based on science, not just someone’s opinion.

This doesn’t mean they disregard the physical attributes of their animals.  Structure should be a given in all breeding programs and your bull breeder should back their cattle 100%.

If you want to make change and start getting results, it’s time to take a look under that handsome beast’s skin, because utilising EBVs is the only way you can accurately predict what his progeny will look like, grow like, breed like, and essentially eat like.
