A dynamic series of presentations will be delivered during the event, covering topics such as:

  • Genomic opportunities for commercial breeders
  • Are Angus cows getting too big?
  • Understanding heat tolerance in Angus cattle
  • New tools and educational support for Angus breeders

Angus Australia Breed Development Officer Matt Reynolds said the following in regards to the event.

“A focus of the presentations lend to the investment Angus Australia has for made in the development of genomic technologies available to Angus producers both commercial and seedstock,” said Mr Reynolds.

“Considering the now reality for commercial producers that there are a number of genomic products available for the consideration of commercial producers, the presentations of the evening may hold even more importance in providing necessary information in regards to how those commercial producers can utilise the benefits of Angus genomic technologies.”

The online event will be followed by a series of facilitated online discussion sessions on May 27th whereby interested participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of presenters and provide feedback to Angus Australia and research staff on the content of the presentations.

“The series of presentations available for viewing are all industry relevant, addressing not only important updates regarding services provided by Angus Australia, but also gives insight into the latest research in development in regards to issues or questions often raised by those involved in the Angus breed.”

“We encourage everyone to jump online and lend an ear to some excellent and informative presentations, and also ulitise the opportunity for some discussion with staff the following day.”

Further information regarding how to register for the online discussion sessions will be distributed during the online event.
