ARDROSSAN BULLS..... Electronically Scanned and GeneSTAR Assessed

To confirm the selection of our genetic lines and ensure the productivity of our bulls’ carcase traits, we have just had Max Bowman, experienced Accredited Livestock Scanner, electronically scan our cattle for -

? Fat Cover – Rib & Rump

? Eye Muscle Area

? Intramuscle Fat

And GENETIC SOLUTIONS identify genetic contributions to these traits through their GeneSTAR technology.

Identified as GeneSTAR Marbling 3 and GeneSTAR Tenderness 4, results for Marbling range from 0 - 6 and Tendernessfrom 0 – 8.

Results are very promising and consist of the following:

Ardrossan Dams Genestar Results 2007

Since September, 2006 Genetic Solutions has identified through DNA, genetic markers which indicate Feed Conversion efficiency.Our results since that date will now include these extra markers, of which 8 in all have been identified so far.

We have received another batch of results from GeneStar, which include some of our flushing cows.

These results compliment our previous excellent results and the combination of our tested cows and bulls confirms our enthusiasm for our Ardrossan Lowline genetics.
