How do you monitor inbreeding on farm? How do you measure the genetic gain in your livestock? How do you decide which animals go into each mating group? If your current process requires multiple spreadsheets, trawling over pedigree trees, and many hours, then you are doing it the hard way! Let our skilled geneticists and data scientists help you out! AbacusBio’s Ani-Mate service can analyse your animal records directly from your performance recording database (e.g. SIL, Breedplan, Deer Select etc).
No more headaches. All you need to do is choose the sires and verify the available dams for the coming season. Then, sit back and let our scientists and mathematicians work out the best mating groups to meet your goals. If you need some extra help with your goals then our breeding objective specialists are at your service.
Want to use one sire per group? Or would you prefer to use a team of sires? The choice is yours! Our experts can advise on single-sire mating allocations or sire-teams of any size. Are some of your sires working too hard or hardly working? Fear not! We can create a list of sire reserves in case you need to make some substitutions during the season.
You will receive a report with your genetic gain over recent years, relatedness tables, the number of dams per sire and the inbreeding analytics of your animals. And, most importantly, drafting lists for your next mating.
