New tools available for setting a Breeding Objective and tracking genetic gain

New tools for setting breeding objective and tracking genetic gain

November 03 2023

Setting a Breeding Objective is the first step to a successful sheep breeding business. Your Breeding Objective should capture key traits for the productivity and profitability of your business, as well as your client’s businesses.

Sheep Genetics is asking for feedback on some recently developed resources to assist both seedstock and commercial producers in setting a Breeding Objective and tracking genetic gain. We encourage seedstock breeders to test these tools for their own business, as well as working one-on-one with clients to develop their Breeding Objective, track their flock’s genetic merit, and develop skills of ram buyers on how to select sires that will help achieve their Breeding Objective. 

Please provide any feedback to Sheep Genetics
