Search across multiple catalogues at the same time using Angus saleSELECT

By Jake Phillips, Extension Manager – Angus Australia

The Angus SaleSELECT tool enables Angus breeders to search and sort the registered Angus animals that are currently available for sale and identify those animals that are most aligned with their breeding goals and objectives. AngusPRO members have their sales listed with Angus Australia.

This modern, intuitive interface makes it easier for breeders to search, sort and compare animals, to pinpoint the exact genetics that are of interest to their enterprise. 

As part of the Angus TECH developments, registered users have the ability to search for animals listed for sale located in catalogues on the Angus Australia database.  

Using Angus saleSELECT gives users the option to search across multiple sale catalogues at same time to better refine the animals that may suit their location, time of year or animals that better suit their breeding objective based on their Estimated Breeding Values. 

To search across multiple sale catalogues, click on Angus SELECT across the top ribbon of the Angus Australia homepage on the website. 
From here, click on Angus saleSELECT button to search across multiple catalogues ( Figure 1)
