ABS Australia led the market with extensive genomic screening three years ago to identify and distribute the most suitable and profitable bulls for Australian dairy farmers. This changed focus in 2014 was around profitable returns to farmers through smart genetic selection.
The results of this program have uncovered some of the best global genetics available from around the world and changed the way all companies and farmers view bull selection in Australia. Breeding a more profitable, healthy and efficient cow has never been more possible than today. ABS' innovative approach has delivered world class profitable (bull) options to Australia's national milking & breeding herd.
