AHDB is holding two workshops at this conference

Monday 20 January, 14.00 - 17:00 Beef Workshop: Planning beef breeding strategies

Breeding lies at the foundation of any beef production system. While herd breeding decisions are just one element of cattle management, selecting superior parents for breeding will lead to cumulative and permanent gains in herd productivity, profitability and efficiency. There is no single definition of a good breeding plan. Instead, breeding plans need to be devised to meet the specific requirements of a herd and the target market. Join the British Cattle Breeders Club and AHDB Beef & Lamb for this practical workshop to take the first steps in developing a breeding plan for your suckler herd.

Tuesday 21 January, 13.40 - 15.10 Dairy Workshop: Breeding – Shape your future

Breeding should be part of the future planning you carry out for your business; whether that is expansion, change of direction or leaving a legacy. Join AHDB Dairy’s Marco Winters and Fern Pearston to learn about the set of of tools available from AHDB designed to help you evaluate your herd’s genetic strengths and weaknesses, inform your breeding decisions and evaluate those decisions once they have been made. Delegates can put these learnings into practice with a break out session during the workshop.
