Currently the BREEDPLAN office is open but where possible ABRI staff are now working from their home offices. ABRI has implemented systems to enable uninterrupted communications with members but we ask that, where possible, you communicate by email rather than by telephone or by fax or post.

We are endeavouring to maintain services as best we can during this extraordinary time and ask for patience with respect to response times.

BREEDPLAN is a modern genetic evaluation system for beef cattle.

Using Best Linear Unbiased Prediction (BLUP) technology, BREEDPLAN produces Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) for a range of economically important production traits.

Testimonials

"We have been using BREEDPLAN for over 30 years and value the data that we have gained from being in this evaluation. For us the ability to measure performance and to monitor the direction that our selection decisions have on our genetic progress is essential. This combined with the ability to look at long term reproductive performance of all females in a pedigree through Internet Solutions and the resulting Days to Calving EBV has been a game changer in selecting for fertility which is still the number 1 profit driver in the Beef Industry."

- Brett Coombe, Roxborough Brahman Stud

"The capability of the [MateSel] tool is beyond what mere mortals can do. It is a fast and effective tool for driving genetic improvement within a herd."

- Jeanne Seifert, Seifert Belmont Reds

"ABRI is ideally placed to provide a service to International Breed Associations, because all benefit from economy of scale, and eventually the “best animals” can be identified internationally. ILR2, BREEDPLAN, Internet Solutions, BreedObject and MateSel provides the ideal pipeline of programs to our producers. Many of our producers also use HerdMASTER. Under the leadership of Hugh Nivison, ABRI has embraced the genomics era and the staff continues to provide a good service to our Societies."

- Michael Bradfield, CEO of Livestock Registering Federation, South Africa
