Dairy Sires

Sire Directory 2016/17

ABS enters a new period with a focus on Profit From Genetic Progress.

ABS takes a keen interest in what our customers are telling us and, after 75 years in the industry, we believe this sire directory is like no other produced by ABS.

Our directory offers breeders, resellers and farm services providers a unique mix of BPI & TPI bulls, together with an outstanding choice of health focused bulls.

And, more importantly, an exceptional range of high ranking medium size bull/cow options along with our first 100% polled bull, the #1 daughter fertility bull available in Australia and the 'only one of its kind' health ranking system ~ TransitionRight.

What is TransitionRight™? We haven't simply taken industry data and incorporated it into an index. ABS Real World Data®(RWD) is using REAL producer data to build value through genetic solutions.

TransitionRight is the only index to use over 20 million cow records to scientifically offer a financial value to farmers that use 5 Star (saving of $100 per lactation) & 4 Star (saving of $50 per lactation) TransitionRight bulls.

This excitingly new ranking system has taken years of study & hundreds of thousands of dollars in research & development. It sets a new standard in the industry and we are proud to now share it with the progressive Australian dairy community.

Stay tuned for more exciting developments & announcements this year.
