Eblex backs online breeding stock service
Eblex has funded an online service that will help farmers capitalise on the increasing demand for performance-recorded breeding stock.
The initiative for Signet Breeding Services provides breeding charts available for 26 of the sheep and nine of the beef breeds that record with Signet and include genetic merit of performance-recorded rams and bulls.
Signet Breeding Services manager Samuel Boon said: “This new tool will be a great asset for breeders wishing to promote the breeding merit of their animals – whether they are selling them off farm or at auction.
“These breeding charts provide a valuable way to promote stock. The new service will enable breeders to enhance the marketing of their animals and capitalise on the increasing demand for performance-recorded breeding stock.”
The charts also provide easy interpretation of Estimated Breeding Values (EBV), which enables commercial buyers to source stock that meets the requirements of their farms.
