At ABS we have a philosophy of People, Programs, Product and our mission statement is Profit from Genetic Progress. To assist our customers to be more profitable, ABS has a number of programs including Sexcel®, Beef InFocus™, NuEra™, High Conception Rate (HCR), Double K and commercial semen usage agreements.
ABS Australia continues to research and implement programs for cattle breeders. We have a great passion for Fixed Time AI (FTAI). We know synchronisation is a profitable management tool for beef producers, providing great gains in calving intervals and genetic growth.
This directory features ABS' HCR program. The conception rates for some sires has been amazing and, with more data added in the last 12 months, we are now able to classify proving sires with ranking levels. The cost per pregnancy can be significantly reduced by as much as 40% and the resultant heifer pool increased by 25%, just by the power of the fertility of a Platinum HCR sire.
Covid has reduced our ability to travel but we are happy to visit your farm, observing Covid social distancing practices. We can also set up Zomm or Teams meetings to discuss your breeding programs.
