The two day Toowoomba Regional Forum is suitable for cattle breeders who are interested in or currently using BREEDPLAN in their beef enterprise.
Day one has been designed for cattle breeders that are new to BREEDPLAN or who wish to refresh their BREEDPLAN knowledge. The day will cover the role of genetics in beef breeding and outline the BREEDPLAN process (including data collection and submission). Attendees will also learn how to get the most from BREEDPLAN and how to interpret BREEDPLAN reports for their herd.
Day two has been designed for beef producers that wish to gain a deeper understanding of the applications of DNA technology for beef breeding, and will assume attendees have a good knowledge of the topics covered on day one. The day will cover parentage verification, genetic conditions and the use of DNA information in BREEDPLAN analyses. BREEDPLAN herds will also be provided with a genetic progress report, which will allow them to benchmark their current genetic progress and identify whether they have made genetic progress for each trait in recent years.
These days have been designed primarily for seedstock producers that use BREEDPLAN within their beef enterprise. However, industry personnel are welcome to attend if interested.
Producers are encouraged to attend both days. Attendance at a single day is also an option.
