Let's Talk Dairy Webinar + podcast - Bull Selection Targets


On this episode of the Let's Talk Dairy webinar series, Stuart Childs, Teagasc Dairy Specialist talks to us about bull selection targets.

Stuart recaps on an overall guideline that Teagasc have issued to people in relation to the breeding targets for this year. How breeding can influence the direction of your herd will also be discussed. Over the last couple of years, there has been less emphasis put on the selection of bulls and more of a focus put on it now apposed to a herd trying to improve the breeding decisions for the farm itself. Stuart takes us through the 2021 bull selection targets relating to the thresholds of EBI, Fertility, Milk and Health.
