Trans-Tasman cattle maternal efficiency

Cattle Roseworthy

This ruminant animal science project aims to improve genetic selection strategies for maternal productivity in Angus and Hereford cattle in Australia and New Zealand.

This project utilises data from the 'Black Baldy project', measurements in Australian seedstock herds, and New Zealand progeny testing herds.

There will be opportunities to be involved in field trips to New South Wales for data collection and analysis. A trip to New Zealand may be possible, but cannot be guaranteed.

Key methodology: Analysis using mixed models in R.
