What is the ASBP?

The Angus Sire Benchmarking Program (ASBP) is a major R&D initiative of Angus Australia with support from MLA and industry partners such as Vetoquinol, Rangers Valley Feedlot and John Dee Abattoir. The objectives of the ASBP are:

  • Generate progeny test data on modern Angus bulls, particularly for hard to measure traits such as feed efficiency, abattoir carcase measurement, meat quality attributes & female reproduction.
  • Generate data for the validation & refinement of Angus BREEDPLAN.
  • Build a comprehensive phenotype & genotype database on Australian Angus for genomic technology validation, research & development.
