Grass based system milking 80 cows and selling beef calves through local market.

Cheshire

Milking 240 cows with all year round calving in a semi-intensive system.

Our priority when choosing beef sires is high calf quality with the least calving difficulty. Over the last 40 years of using Genus ABS proven beef sires, we have seen huge success in the quality of the calves produced, resulting in higher prices when sold to the retail scheme. Over the last 18 months of using Genus ABS sires, we have been able to accelerate profitability through faster growth rates. We started using more beef to reduce the number of Friesian bulls born and as a result, our beef calves are achieving great prices in the market. For our business, the Fertility Plus British Blue provides us with calves that are born easily and of high calf quality. The quality we are seeing from the calves continues to increase and we are experiencing a very low mortality rate.

What our customers think of our beef young sire testing programme… “Having now tried 10-12 different sires through Beef Cornerstone™ and not finding calving difficulties, I am confident to use Genus ABS young beef sires. It’s nice to have up to date sires but I also like to send feedback through the surveys to further improve performance. The calving survey makes it a win - win financially and we are getting access to the best beef genetics!” Ross Edwards, Somerset - milking 550 cows three times a day with an all year round calving pattern.

“We have used Genus ABS young beef sires for over 20 years and became members of Beef CornerstoneTM when it was launched. We get regular allocations of young beef bull semen and the credit received for surveys are a great incentive. I look for bulls that will produce calves that are easily born, grow quickly and grade well. I believe Beef CornerstoneTM is vital to improving the quality of proven beef bulls in the future.”

“The main advantages we have found being a member of Beef CornerstoneTM over the last 12 months are the quality beef genetics available and the calving survey credit that we receive in return of calving data. We are now more confident using young beef sires from Genus ABS and would recommend others to join.” Martin Lyall, Cumbria - milking 250 Holsteins and calving all year round.

Andrew Wood, Derbyshire - milking 120 cows all year round calving and finish 50-70 beef animals per year.

Genus ABS Beef Calving Survey To continue to provide reliable proven beef sires to our valued dairy customers, we gather significant Real World DataTM sets using using our Genus ABS Beef Calving Survey to identify elite beef sires for use on dairy cows. Over the last 40 years, only 35% of beef sires have become proven from the hundreds of beef sires tested. By rejecting bulls that don’t make the grade, Genus ABS take pride in having the world’s best beef on dairy programme. Using breed EBV data, we are able to identify young beef bulls that have the potential to transmit desirable traits. However, this is based on pedigree breeding data and is often predicted from small data sets, therefore EBV’s alone are not accurate enough in cross breeding.

How we test our beef sires on dairy cows: Beef sires sourced or bred from our NUERA GeneticsTM programme

Calving observations and information collected at birth using Beef Calving Survey

Semen is collected and distributed to over 2,000 UK dairy farms, including Beef CornerstoneTM members

Sires that reach our high standards become ‘proven’ with over 120 calving’s in 60 herds ‘Rock Solid Genetics’

The table below shows proven sires calving survey results on dairy cows... We display data for beef sires on a scale of 70-130 BSI and all results collected from the Genus ABS Beef Calving Survey are compared against our own breed averages, based on decades of data collection.

We strive to deliver better efficiencies through the beef supply chain with the analysis of data and constant genetic progress.

13 13


New BeefConnect® Genetic Premium Available Through BeefConnect® we have been able to demonstrate the value of beef genetics in the supply chain and are now able to offer a bonus to members of the group in the form of a new calf genetic premium. Through the data collected from calves that have been sold through the scheme with a registered sire ID, we are now starting to identify the genetics that deliver increased growth, daily liveweight gain and improved profit. By categorising our Angus sires based on the performance of their progeny, they now fall into three different bands offering either a £30, £20 or £10 premium to the farmer when the calf is sold through BeefConnect®. Farmers will be paid the premium if the calves meet the specification, the correct sire details are printed on the passport. The premium bands will be updated every six months.

“We are saving in both time and resources by selling calves off farm from as young as 10 days old compared to two and three week old. Another benefit we’ve seen is an extra £100 achieved on average for Espresso calves compared to another native sire used on the herd.” D & J P Dakin & Family, Cheshire - Currently milking 170 cow and have been supplying calves through BeefConnect® for four months.

“After attending a BeefConnect® prospect day over two years ago, we decided to use Angus on the low index cows and heifers and have been supplying calves through BeefConnect® since. We save time and money with calves being collected from the farm from as young as 10 days of age and we are now benefiting from the BeefConnect® Genetic Premium that is available.” C Whitticase & Son, Shropshire - currently herd size 340 cows. Supplying calves through BeefConnect® for two years.

*Relative conception rate (RCR) measures conception rate of sexed semen compared to conception rate of conventional semen from the same sires. Data is taken from inseminations in heifers with pregnancy checks at 30-90 days. This data does not reflect a head to head trial. Data source: Sexcel data is from a 2016 ABS field trial. Stud A, B, C, D, E data is from customer commercial results 2014-2017 reported through the ABS Real World Data® database for the major bull studs in the AI industry.

“We have been using Sexcel since the launch date in September- first signs are very promising and are currently running at 66% CR which is about 8% higher than we have achieved previously. Our aim going forward is to use more Sexcel product on heifers & we have started to serve cows as well to make sure we have plenty of replacements due to pressures on TB losses. With the help of GMS we are breeding from the highest ranked HPR cows and the remainder to Fertility Plus British Blue.**” Robert Long, Halford, UK - Genus ABS Customer ** Based on the observations of the customer

1

Heat Detection: A dedicated RMS technician will visit your herd on a daily basis to identify cows on heat.

2

Sorting cows for AI: The RMS technician will also locate the cows that are on heat and serve the cow, all with minimal disruption.

3

“Since starting on RMS, we have seen great results on our Aberdeen-Angus heifers. We are now able to access world-class genetics through AI, reduce calving intervals, save money not having to purchase numerous stock bulls and hope to add consistency to calf crops. For the future, we are increasing RMS use to include the whole herd whilst increasing our breeding female numbers.� Will & Sophie Crystal - started on RMS November 2017 using RMS on heifers, currently at 68 Aberdeen-Angus breeding females, looking to expand to 150 breeding females.
