Looking for BDGP eligible heifers at local mart sales? ICBF has just put the ‘Mart Tracker’ live which allows you to see what BDGP eligible heifers are being traded in marts throughout the country on the same day.
How does it work?
Approx. 80% of marts now display ICBF data on the sales ring screens. As animals are checked into these marts before a sale, ICBF will list the eligible ones (genotyped and 4/5 stars) on the Mart Tracker.
How to use?
- Click the link on the ICBF homepage.
- Choose a mart from the dropdown.
- Once you’ve selected a mart a listing of the BDGP eligible heifers/cows will appear underneath.
The main details are displayed here for each animal e.g. lot number, age, star rating, etc. For more details on each animal you can click on the tag number which will take you to the animal search page for that animal.
The ‘Mart Tracker’ will only display animals that are for sale on the current day. ICBF is working with marts to host special sales. For these sales animals will be submitted beforehand which will allow potential buyers more time to view the animals online.
