The National Association of Hungarian Charolais Cattle Breeders is the ABRI’s first central European BREEDPLAN client to make use of the BREEDPLAN genetic evaluation system for their national population. In addition, they are the first central European client to make use of ABRI’s genomic data storage system with a goal of incorporating this genomic information into a Single-Step BREEDPLAN evaluation.
The investment made by Hungarian Charolais breeders in the genotyping of seedstock animals has resulted in them having the fifth largest genomic database hosted by ABRI among ABRI’s BREEDPLAN clients, globally. To add to their investment in successful breeding, the National Association of Hungarian Charolais Cattle Breeders released three economic indexes using BreedObject v6.2 earlier this year.
ABRI are thrilled to pursue this collaboration with the National Association of Hungarian Charolais Cattle Breeders and continue to pursue ongoing research and development throughout the European beef breeding industry.
