Dear Red Angus and Simmental members,

I will be in Dubbo on Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st June for the Red Angus and Simmental National Show and Sale.

For BREEDPLAN herds, this means that there will be the opportunity to have a “herd visit”. Herd visits involve a one-on-one session with an SBTS staff member, where you will have the opportunity to discuss your Completeness of Performance (where we discuss the level of performance recording you are doing in your herd), and your Genetic Progress report (the genetic progress you have made in the previous 5 year period). This is also a good opportunity to discuss any BREEDPLAN related questions you may have. Herd visits usually take around 1 to 1.5 hours, and will be conducted at the Dubbo Showgrounds on the Tuesday and Wednesday. Please note that herd visits MUST be pre-booked as there are several hard copy reports which need to be generated prior to the herd visit.

For those who are considering joining BREEDPLAN and would like further information, or who have specific BREEDPLAN questions but don’t want to do a full herd visit, I will also be available on the Tuesday and Wednesday for individual discussions. You can either book a time, or try and catch me when I am free. Booking a time is advised as that way I will be able to bring any necessary material to Dubbo with me.

If you would like to book some time to have a one-on-one discussion and/or herd visit, please contact me on (02) 6773 3357 or via email Please note that these times will be allocated on a first-in, first-served basis.

I look forward to seeing you in Dubbo on the 20th and 21st of June.

Kind regards,
