ABS Pasture to Plate Genetic Evaluation System

  • ABS Pasture to PlateTM genetic evaluation system is designed to identify and deliver profit-oriented genetics that perform throughout the beef supply chain and provide added value for our commercial customers.
  • These initial indexes focus on the terminal aspects of beef production specifically on the performance, quality and efficiency traits that drive end-product value.
  • Pasture to PlateTM starts with the cow herd and ABS remains dedicated to also providing the best in current and progressive maternal solutions. Look for future maternal indexes and ask about our best cow-maker sires and sexed semen options today.
