Better Bull Buying Webinar Series - Bull Selection Decisions for Heifer Matings
The better bull buying on-line series is your guide to selecting and buying bulls that best suits your breeding objectives, region and target markets.
In partnership with Southern Beef Technology Services, NSW Department of Primary Industries (Animal Genetic and Breeding Unit) and HVC Production and Breeding, Riverina Local Land Services hosted a series of on-line webinar workshops for landholders and cattle producers during March 2022.
There are many selection criteria that can be used, and generally the aim is to buy bulls that have the ideal soundness, temperament, on formation, muscling, reproductive fitness and estimated breeding values that best suits your production goals.
But understanding and defining the best genetics to select that beef producers can use to improve production, profits and sustainability will be influenced by buying and managing bulls better to produce more calves, aid calving ease, and produce progeny that grow fast with desirable carcase traits that repeatedly meet market specifications.
