BREEDPLAN’s Global Expansion

ABRI is now seeing a significant volume of genotyping coming through from our European and UK clients, in levels that exceed that of many of our middle tier domestic breeds. This represents an exciting time for ABRI, as potential opportunities throughout Europe arise.

Currently we are working with the National Association of Hungarian Charolais Cattle Breeders and the South Devon Herd Book Society in the UK to transition each to a Single-Step BREEDPLAN evaluation. Discussions are also underway with clients in South America and Southern Africa to collect and store genomic data for inclusion in their respective BREEDPLAN evaluations.

We continue to see growing interest for ABRI’s services, including BREEDPLAN genetic evaluations among beef breed associations throughout Europe. ABRI is working with representatives of Aberdeen Angus populations to receive data extracts for review, test BREEDPLAN evaluations, and provide the preliminary distribution of results using electronic and online options.

ABRI technical staff continue to engage with breed association boards and technical committees representing our international clients. We welcome the opportunity to provide a ‘try-before-you-buy’ approach to BREEDPLAN and ABRI services. Please get in touch if you’d like to find out more.
