KIM SULTANA ABS Australia is pleased to introduce Kim Sultana to our beef sales team. Kim has been involved in the AI industry since early 2001, firstly in an administration role and then moving into other areas including semen & embryo handling, importation of product for clients, freight and customer sales & deliveries. Moving to another employer where she was employed for just over 12 years, Kim was involved with the dairy and beef sides of the business, enjoying the beef semen sales area the most. Kim says she basically enjoys talking all things ‘cows’ and is passionate about everything involved with breeding cattle from the ground up; from discussing the seed used when sod seeding, to the end results of AI with animals on the ground and through the saleyards. Kim has also recently spent time working on a local dairy farm, helping with springers, calf raising and milking. She admits she has been guilty of picking the farmer’s brain to pieces about anything and everything ‘cattle’ while working in the pit! Kim is married, with two teenage daughters and, apart from cattle, Kim’s interests include gardening and her horses. Contact Kim on 0438 418 113 (Office hours) Email Kim at kim.sultana@genusplc.com

Oldest Living ABS Bull celebrates Golden Birthday

ABS® Global Inc., the world leader in bovine genetics, reproduction services and artificial insemination technologies, recently celebrated the 17th birthday of a veteran ABS bull — New Design 878. A black Angus, born Feb. 17, 1998, New Design 878 has been an impressive producer since he was a yearling.

At the turn of the year, 878’s production level approached 725,000 units, and he continues to rank in ABS’s top 20 bulls for beef semen sales in several regions across the globe. From 2003 through 2006, New Design 878 topped the registration charts as the number one sire for registrations in the Angus breed, still holds the single-year registration record with 10,190 calves registered in 2004 for total lifetime registrations with 52,978 calves through September 2014.

“We knew from the day 878 arrived at ABS that he was going to be a popular animal,” said Doug Frank, ABS beef product manager. “He had a quick start and customers really liked his first calves — skyrocketing his popularity. He has since had a strong finish — continuing to offer the highest accuracy multi-trait proof in the industry.”

Despite his age, New Design 878 continues to hit the list of American Angus Association’s Pathfinders — holding the top slot for five years from 2008-2012 and remaining No. 12 today. 878’s maternal influence will likely be his most important legacy with 16,630 daughters on record weaning 55,543 calves and continuing to pass along his phenomenal genes.
