Illawambra animals in high demand

Parrish family
Region: New South Wales
Topic: Genomic testing

The Parrish family’s cows and bulls have always been in demand but this year they’ve skyrocketed to a new level. They have four bulls in Genetics Australia`s 2021 progeny test team and have sold 88 cows to other farmers so far this year.

It’s hardly a case of overnight success for the Kangaroo Valley, NSW, farmers. Their herd has been in the top 10 for Balanced Performance Index (BPI) for more years than Trevor Parrish can remember.
