BREEDPLAN introduction

Getting started with BREEDPLAN

BREEDPLAN is becoming vital for all members wishing to produce quality Wagyu seedstock. Many bull buyers are skilled in selection using EBVs and won’t buy unless they can reasonably gauge the genetic performance of bulls on offer. The live export market is growing for Wagyu, with Fullblood/Purebred Category 1 bulls and females required to have EBV/Index performance data. Wagyu BREEDPLAN is being further improved with the addition of new carcase EBVs from the Genetic Research Project, so enrol your Wagyu herd early ready for the benefits.

Don’t miss out, join BREEDPLAN today – BREEDPLAN is free for AWA Full Members. Mark the standard enrolment form Method of Payment as “No charge”.

The BREEDPLAN website now features a “Getting Started with BREEDPLAN” area, created specifically for herds that are either new to BREEDPLAN or potential BREEDPLAN recorders.

This features the newly compiled “BREEDPLAN: A Guide to Getting Started” booklet, a comprehensive guide for herds enrolling with BREEDPLAN, as well as BREEDPLAN enrolment forms, BREEDPLAN fee schedules and a range of technical resources.
