Beef InFocus™

Beef on Dairy, but not as you know it.
ABS Beef InFocus™, powered by NuEra Genetics™, delivers proven and reliable beef genetics for the dairy producer to maximise calf crop value while driving beef supply chain efficiency.

Data Driven Results


ABS is committed to developing and offering elite genetics that drive profitability.

Profit from genetic progress requires a planned strategy to ensure value from each and every pregnancy.

ABS works with dairies to create a comprehensive genetic plan that aligns with the dairy’s goals. Most plans utilise Sexcel® Sexed Genetics on the genetically-superior animals and strategically use ABS Beef InFocus on the bottom of the herd to create the high-demand, beef cross calf the industry is seeking.

Not every beef on dairy calf has the same genetic value. Each ABS Beef InFocus sire delivers:

  • Tailored beef genetics for dairies
  • Proven performance on dairies
  • Data-driven results

Tailored Beef Genetics for Dairies

Beef InFocus sires are specifically created or selected for dairy cows to maximise dairy and beef supply chain profitability.

  • NuEra Genetics is the genetic engine behind Beef InFocus and develops an elite source of sires.
  • All sires including those obtained outside NuEra are intentionally designed for performance on dairy breeds.

Proven Performance on Dairies

Calving performance – traits that are economically important for dairies – are collected through Beef Cornerstone, adding to ABS’s Real World Data® (RWD™) system.

The results collected are then converted to financial values to give an overall BeefAdvantage™. The BeefAdvantage index is the additional profit an individual ABS proven beef sire can deliver, compared to the average bull of that breed when crossed on to dairy cows.

To qualify as fully Beef InFocus proven, a sire must have a minimum of 120 calving observations from at least 60 different herds.

Calving performance is evaluated by collecting data and confirming:

  • Calving ease
  • Gestation length
  • Calf Quality
  • Calf Survivability

Performance in Finishing

Growth and finishing performance traits that are economically relevant to customers finishing cattle in a beef cross dairy system, is becoming more and more important with the increased use of beef in dairy herds.

Utilising RWD™ collected right through the beef supply chain, we created NuEra Profit index to rank sires on profitability to the finisher. The index is appropriately weighted to both drive down the cost of production with quick growth and less days to finish, whilst also producing higher value carcases at laughter.
