The recent update to the ‘Collection Guidelines for TACE’ is the first of a number of new resources from Angus Australia to assist members in the collection of performance information.
Two new resources have now also been released:
The resources provide members with all the important information associated with the recording of performance information for a number of new traits which members can now submit performance information to Angus Australia, and for which, Research Breeding Values (RBVs) will be calculated.
Once such trait is Mature Cow Body Condition. To support members with the scoring of animals the ‘Paddock Guide to Body Condition Scoring’ has been produced.
The guide provides members with detailed descriptions, illustrations and photographs to support the body condition scoring of animals. The guide, designed to be taken out in the paddock, is the perfect reference material for any member undertaking the recording of body condition scores on mature Angus cows.
Both the ‘Collection guidelines for Angus Research’ and the ‘Collection guidelines for TACE’ are available in print and electronically in the Angus Education Centre.
