There has never been a better time
Farming is never easy.
Even in good times, a farmer must always prepare for what is coming next.
Because you can’t control the weather and you can’t control the markets.
And as sure as night follows day, new challenges will always emerge.
In response to deteriorating climatic and market conditions across much of Australia, many livestock producers are now looking to reduce stock numbers, alongside other management strategies.
Evaluating which stock to keep and which stock to cull is a key consideration in these circumstances, with the retention of those animals with superior genetic merit being a critical objective.
Retaining the most genetically superior animals not only ensures that the results from many generations of breeding are preserved, but also ensures the breeding herd can quickly return to optimum productivity when conditions improve.
Thankfully, with Neogen, livestock producers now have access to a number of current and emerging genomic tools that assist with the identification and retention of genetically superior animals.
Neogen’s genomic, or DNA based tools, enable;
- selection decisions to be made with greater accuracy, ensuring the animals retained in the breeding herd carry the best genetics possible.
- selection decisions to be made early in an animal’s life, without needing to wait for the collection of performance measurements.
- selection decisions to be made focussed on the genetic merit of animals, rather than being based on the class or age of animals.
Now more than ever, Neogen Genomics gives you the tools you need to make difficult decisions with confidence.
Take back control and set yourself up to succeed.
