PUBLIC LECTURE: Alan Sevier Memorial Lecture: Beefing up the West with genetics
|Alan Sevier Memorial Lecture: Beefing up the West with genetics : Dr David Johnston will deliver the inaugural Alan Sevier Memorial Lecture during which he will discuss how genetic selection can be used across the beef supply chain to increase productivity and profitability
Recent advances in beef cattle genetics have the potential to change beef breeding. They can enable seedstock breeders to significantly increase rates of genetic progress and importantly at the commercial sector, allow producers to better match genetics to their production systems and markets.
The talk will discuss how genetics and selection can be used across the beef supply chain to increase productivity and profitability.
The presentation will cover recent advancements in beef cattle genetics including the evolving field of DNA and genomics, new genetic evaluation systems and the development of novel traits with a focus on northern systems.
