The ABS Genetic Type Summary (GTS) program allows breeders to make the most informed breeding decisions in the industry by accurately and objectively describing physical trait differences for individual sires' progeny.

Structural problems in cattle have a substantial effect on both the reproductive and growth performance of a beef herd.  It is widely recognised that structural problems in sires have determined effects on conception rates, calving patterns and thus profitability.

The Beef Class Structural Assessment System uses a 1-9 scoring system for feet and leg structure.  For further information on the System and sire assessments, please click here.
