Beef Efficiency Scheme – Genomics ft Eileen Wall
Posted in Beef Cattle, Livestock
In this podcast, Eileen Wall, Head of Research at SRUC, provides an overview of the genomics work she is involved in – looking at genetics data and tissue samples recorded by farmers on the Beef Efficiency Scheme (BES).
Through the genomics project, Eileen and her team hope to develop genetic and genomic evaluations that could be beneficial for farmers looking to develop specific traits within their livestock, to improve production and/or profitability.
