Topic: Heat Tolerance ABV

Two years ago, Trevor Parrish’s bull-buying clients were asking about the new Heat Tolerance Australian Breeding Value (ABV). Now it doesn’t rate a mention.

But that’s not because the NSW bull-breeder’s clients don’t care about Heat Tolerance. Quite the contrary. These farmers, who are mostly in NSW and Queensland, consider Heat Tolerance as one the core breeding values that makeup a sustainable and efficient animal.
