June 2015
Regional Forums - Nearly over... Cleve date change!!
  • 7th July - York WA (The York Palace Hotel)
  • 11th August - Cleve SA (Jamieson Conference Centre) - This was originally set down for June but due to a combination of factors we decided to reschedule. We encourage anyone in this area to attend as the forums are beneficial for members to consolidate knowledge and provide helpful tips for getting the most from LAMBPLAN and MERINOSELECT. 
The Forums start at 9 and run through till roughly 4pm and are at a cost of $33 inc GST per business unit which includes morning tea and lunch. If you are interested in attending please send an email to info@sheepgenetics.org.au
Ram Finder App
RamSelect.com.au - List your rams for sale with Sheep Genetics (Article supplied by Sheep CRC)

The Sheep CRC is in the final stages of developing a web based application that will dramatically simplify the ranking and purchase of rams for your clients. RamSelect.com.au is being developed in collaboration with Telstra and Pivotal Labs in San Francisco, one of the leading software development companies in the world.

In a major step forward for the sheep industry, RamSelect.com.au will allow commercial producers to purchase rams using ASBVs without the need for a detailed understanding of the data. It will also be an important marketing tool for breeders assisting clients to select ram teams.
