It’s official, Western Australia is home to some of the best dairy genes in the country. And they were celebrated this week (16 May) at the Dairy Innovation Day hosted by the Daubney and Bettink families at Northcliffe.
DataGene is on the look out for dairy farmers who keep meticulous records to join Ginfo, the industry’s national reference group for genetic information.
Participating herds will have their 2-year-old heifers DNA tested (genotyped) and classified for free and have the option to test young female calves at a discount. They also receive a year’s free subscription to the HerdData app and early access to DataGene’ s reports and tools under development.
