An event focusing on tools to enhance ram breeding programmes *** UPDATED 15-Aug-2013 ***

A Sheep Breeders Day is being held in conjunction with the conference for the Australasian Association for the Advancement of Breeding and Genetics at the time of the 150th Hawkes Bay A&P Show, on 24th October 2013 at the Hawkes Bay Showgrounds.

Targeted at sheep breeders from Australia and New Zealand, the day will focus on how using the latest tools available to breeders will improve our ability to produce high-performing stock with high accuracy measures of genetic merit. Top scientists and other specialists will give their ideas on emerging research and outline how we can address the challenges facing genetic improvement in the future. 

There is no cost to register, however, there will be a cost of $16 to enter the Showgrounds, payable at the gate. The first 60 people to register will receive free entry tickets to the show.

 Further information will be provided here as it becomes available, including updates on the programme for the day. Mark this event in your diaries now.
