Webinar: Breeding to shape your future

Past Event

Tuesday, 26 November 2019

7:00pm - 8:00pm

Join for this webinar with Andy Rutter from Clayden Farm Partnership, where we’ll explore how to get the most from your breeding decisions.

Previously the breeding manager at Genus, Andy re-joined the family dairy farm milking 450 pedigree Holsteins in Cheshire 18 months ago and will share his experience to help you select the right sires to meet your breeding goals.

The webinar will cover:

  • Genetic indexes and how these are incorporated into the UK economic indexes; £PLI, £SCI and £ACI
  • How to use data, including the Herd Genetic Report and other tools, to identify areas where breeding can help your herd performance
  • Top Tips to preparing for and use during a meeting with your breeding rep plus reviewing your breeding decisions post meeting

Andy says that, “Farmers spend 2 to 5% of their time on breeding but it delivers 30 to 50% of improvement on farm and has a massive influence on profitability" so if you're involved with breeding decisions, don't miss the opportunity to learn about how breeding can shape the future of your herd.
