High input

Breed profitable milking cows that thrive in higher performance Australian dairy farming systems.

Our high input selection index helps you select bulls that are more likely to breed daughters that will deliver production, fertility and longevity in high milk production herds.

How the high input selection index works

Our high input index focuses on four important traits that a dairy cow needs to perform within a high production (yield) system.

These traits are:

  • udder support
  • capacity
  • udder overall
  • residual survival

The index focuses on these four traits in conjunction with the other important profitability traits found in Breeding Worth (BW) to identify those animals best suited to very high production farms.

You can use the high input selection index to identify artificial insemination bulls that are most suited to farms where the milk volume needed from cows is far greater than that of a grazing dairy farm in Australia.
