Understanding Estimated Breeding Values EBVs (Castle Kennedy)
EBVs provide information which help commercial beef farmers identify bulls which breed calves that maximise returns for the store producer and finisher. The information can also assist in selecting bulls for their ability to provide good milky replacements and those that are best to go on heifers to avoid calving difficulties.
The workshop provides active participation to help producers gain a better understanding and develop their ability to select bulls for specific purposes on their farm. Potential buyers will also benefit from the day as we will work with catalogues for imminent bull sales.
