Type Classification

Type Classification is a service available to members to assist in breeding a trouble free, long living, high production cow. The assessment of 22 linear type traits to produce 4 composite scores and the analysis of 5 welfare traits has been proven to directly impact cattle productivity. In the past 5 years, there has been a 20% increase in classified cattle representing the direct link between breeding the right type of cow for your system and farm profitability.

Highly graded animals are proven to have a considerably higher value than non-classified animal. Specific strengths and weaknesses are highlighted allowing improved corrective breeding decisions to be made, and the general standard of conformation to be improved across the herd. Cattle of a better conformation are proven to be more productive, less demanding and longer-living.
