DNA Testing and Registrations

An overview of the registration process and methods to submit animal registrations.

Collecting Performance Information

A description of the production traits you can collect and how to submit the data to the AWA for genetic analysis.

Member login area and database search

Understand your member login area and Wagyu database search facility. Learn how it can benefit your breeding program.

SNP Genotyping

Introducing the genotyping options available to members.

The future of parent verification and DNA testing

An overview of the correct collection of DNA samples and how to submit the samples for parent verification and genetic condition testing. We'll also discuss the registration process and methods to submit animal registrations.

New grading-up options

The availability of the Crossbred Wagyu Test (CWT) opens up the opportunity to determine the Wagyu percentage of an animal. The AWA board recently approved new By-Laws allowing the use of the CWT results to assign grades to tested animals. We will look at how you can now register those animals which could previously not be parent verified.

How to manage scours in Wagyu cattle

In this segment Enoch Bergman challenges the way you think about and manage scours. This workshop presentation provides practical, relatable and scientifically grounded methods for the cause of scours and how to go about managing scours in Wagyu cattle

Capture data using Practical Systems Herd Management software

This workshop session explains how to increase the efficiency of your registration process by utilising herd management software, Stockbook, to capture, manage and distribute animal data to the AWA.

BREEDPLAN and optimal mating using advanced MatSel

This workshop session looks at BREEDPLAN and optimal mating using Advanced MatSel. Also what to look at in Wagyu animals, breeding tools available, the importance of accurate data collection, where EBV's come from and how they are calculated; and the large amount of genetic gain that can be achieved through the use of this data.
