Regional Forums start next week

September 26, 2018 11:38 am

The Angus Australia regional forums are back for 2018 with events scheduled across Australia during October. The regional forums are free and open to anyone interested in Angus cattle and are a great way to catch up with Angus Australia staff and fellow Angus beef producers.

2018 will see the forums focus on a “Journey to genetic improvement”,  providing participants with a series of presentations on the latest developments and services offered by Angus Australia.
The presentations will interest seed stock and commercial producers with topics to include;

  • Genomic technologies: what can genomic testing deliver to your herd
  • Case studies on the value of genomic testing
  • What’s being achieved with the Angus Sire Benchmarking Program
  • Angus.Tech showcase: the changing face of the Angus Australia database
  • What’s coming next for Angus breeders: Future programs and developments at Angus Australia

Members wanting help with Angus.Tech are encouraged to stick around after the event and participate in an Angus.Tech tutorial, where specific questions regarding their use of Angus.Tech can be answered. Members interested in participating are encouraged to bring along their own laptop or iPad.
