Angus Australia is seeking feedback on the research selection indexes that have been made available for industry review.
Members can provide feedback by completing an online member survey and/or participating in a focus group meeting during September.
A link to complete the online member survey is available by clicking here. The survey will remain open until Thursday September 30th.
The focus group meetings will be conducted via video conference and will be facilitated by Angus Australia’s Breed Development Officer, Matt Reynolds. Each focus group meeting will include no more than 5 people to provide all attendees with ample opportunity to provide feedback.
Members interested in participating in a focus group meeting need to register their interest and availability by Monday, September 13th, following which a schedule for the meetings will be compiled.

The feedback obtained from the online survey and the focus group meetings will be used to fine tune the research selection indexes prior to potential implementation in the TransTasman Angus Cattle Evaluation in late November, in association with the December 2021 TransTasman Angus Cattle Evaluation.
Members with any questions about the research selection index consultation process should contact Angus Australia’s Breed Development & Extension Manager, Andrew Byrne, on (02) 6773 4618 or email@example.com.
