Harness The Power
Of Genetic Gain
Malcom Ellis, commercial dairy farmer and LIC GM Emerging Markets,
makes some interesting observations around his experience in dairying
and points out a new approach may be needed for success in the future.
Genomically-selected bulls have been marketed by LIC for
eight years. Here, we offer insight into into the progress
that has been made since 2013.
All-out AB vs.
AB + natural-mate
LIC's reproduction specialists compare all-AB herds with
AB-plus-natural-mating herds. Is there any difference in
reproductive outcomes between the two approaches?
Massive milestone for dairy industry:
LIC tags its 10,000th bull!
With one clamp of a handheld tag punch,
LIC’s 10,000th Sire Proving Scheme (SPS)
bull calf has been tagged.
The Art of Mastering
a Game Plan
Read how one New Zealand farmer puts his herd's tight calving
interval squarely down to Short Gestation Length (SGL) semen,
and how he's seen plenty of his cows calve at 265-268 days
- substantially earlier than the standard 282 days.
Get MORE with
the Short Straw
With bulls selectively bred to shorten gestation length
up to 10 days, your cows get more time to recover, more
chance of getting back in calf and more days in milk.
