Beef x Dairy - but not as you know it!
The industry is changing and there us a new way to accelerate genetic progress.
The ABS Beef on Dairy program can help improve efficiency and increase profits by using a new and modern approach to genetic management. This enables you to increase short term cash flow and improve your future herd genetics.
ABS Beef InFocus™ is the evolution of traditional beef on dairy programs for Australia. ABS strategically works with dairies around the world to combine proven, high-quality Beef InFocus sire genetics with a comprehensive breeding program. This genetic progress generated by InFocus sires is producing healthy feeder cattle that grow faster, convert feed more efficiently and yield more saleable meat.

The ABS Global Beef Team has collected benchmarking data that compares ABS InFocus growth and harvest performance to industry data for Holstein steers, beef steers and heifers. Feeder cattle performance is best measured by kilograms of growth and carcass yields. Actual carcass data best describes the value of InFocus sired cattle. ABS is committed to using our Genetic Progress to develop InFocus cattle that will compete with traditional fed beef.
