Angus CONNECT is on tomorrow

Angus breeders are invited to attend Angus CONNECT – Autumn 2022, exploring the ever-evolving space of genomic solutions for commercial production.   The online event will be held on the Angus Australia YouTube channel at 7pm on Thursday the 26th of May and will showcase the launch of the second generation of Angus HeiferSELECT.  

The event will be host to presentations by Angus Australia staff, scientists from Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO and other guests who will give comprehensive information on the latest Angus HeiferSELECT product. 

Topics Include: 

  • Official Launch of Angus HeiferSELECT Generation II  
  • The Science Behind Select  
  • Case Study – Producers using Angus HeiferSELECT  
  • Validation – the proof in the pudding  
  • New Developments in the Commercial Genomics Space  

Angus Australia Northern Development Officer Jen Peart looks forward to hosting an event that provides insight into the latest Angus HeiferSELECT product. 

“Angus HeiferSELECT is a genomic selection tool to help inform the selection of Angus replacement females in a commercial beef breeding operation. During Angus CONNECT there will be an array of presentations on the evening that examine Angus HeiferSELECT, both from a technical perspective but also genuine accounts of the benefits and challenges from producers utilising Angus HeiferSELECT within their commercial Angus herds.” 

“We encourage all producers with an interest in breeding Angus cattle to join the event for some practical information sessions about Angus HeiferSELECT and developments in genomic technology for commercial operations, which will be valuable to both existing users as well as producers looking to utilise the technology.” 

Angus CONNECT will be followed by a facilitated online discussion session at 10am Friday 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. 

Angus Australia General Manager – Genetic Improvement Christian Duff also encouraged producers to join the discussion session if they have any questions about Heifer SELECT. 

“The Angus CONNECT discussion session, held the day after the Angus CONNECT event, is an excellent opportunity for producers to have their queries addressed directly with Angus Australia staff.”
