Booroomooka Angus aims to produce structurally sound, fertile, quiet cattle with the genetic potential to increase long term profitability. Cattle are run in large contemporary groups so that genetic differences can be measured. Data is collected for traits such as calving ease, fertility, growth and carcass quality. The data is analyzed in an advanced genetic evaluation system – Angus Group Breedplan - that provides a genetic description of the registered cattle.
Prior to the mating season every female is visually assessed for traits such as structure, temperament, udder evenness, teat size/shape, constitution, breeding performance etc.
Accurate data recording is essential. Calves are weighed within 24 hours of being born (birth weight). Large amounts of data are collected including weaning weight, docility score, 400 day weight, ultrasound scan for carcase eye muscle area, P8 and rib fat, Intramuscular Fat (marbling), scrotal size, 600 day weight, mature cow weight, Hip Height etc. The bulls are structurally assessed by an accredited independent assessor. DNA testing is carried out to audit pedigree information and to identify important genes. Sires are entered into Leading Industry Approved Progeny Tests such as The Elite Trangie Progeny Test, Angus Young Sire Program and the Angus Sire Benchmark Program.
