Following the announcement that a number of significant enhancements will shortly be made to the calculation of Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) for Angus cattle in Australia and New Zealand, Angus Australia will be hosting Angus CONNECT – TACE Enhancements on Wednesday November 16.
Angus CONNECT – TACE Enhancements is one of a number of activities planned by Angus Australia in the coming months to explain the enhancements to Angus breeders across Australia and New Zealand.
The enhancements form part of the annual updates that Angus Australia makes to the TransTasman Angus Cattle Evaluation and are scheduled for implementation in the December 2022 analysis.
The enhancements scheduled for implementation in 2022 are focussed on providing Angus breeders with the tools to make more accurate selection decisions from the availability of next generation breeding values, particularly for the EBVs related to carcase weight, quality and yield, while also introducing evaluation efficiencies that will ensure the long-term viability of the genetic evaluation. In addition to these enhancements breeders will also have access to new EBVs on animals as well as EBVs becoming available on more animals than previous.
Angus CONNECT – TACE Enhancements will be presented as a webinar that will provide information to members regarding the upcoming TACE enhancements, as well as an opportunity for members to join in discussion with Angus Australia staff regarding the updates.
Pre-registration will be required for Angus CONNECT – TACE Enhancements.
