ICBF in collaboration with DAFM and ICOS are coordinating BDGP eligible female sales in marts thoughout September and October. These females will be genotyped 4/5-star and born on/before 30th June 2021. If purchased, they will immediately be counted towards your herd’s 31st Oct target once moved into your herd number.
Herds interested in purchasing eligible females
Entries for these sales can be viewed through your ICBF online account (mobile & app). Once logged in go to ‘Services’ > ‘Stock Express’ > ‘Buyer’ and select the sale you are interested in. Most animals will be entered the week of the sale.
Having purchased genotyped 4/5-star females please recheck your herd’s BDGP compliance online through your ICBF account. Under the ‘View Profiles’ dropdown click ‘BDGP Eligibility’. This profile will give you an up to date picture of where your herd stands in relation to each target. Any targets which your herd is non-compliant on will be highlighted in red.
If you are short BDGP eligible females and are not waiting for genotyping results, your only option to meet the 31st Oct target is to purchase genotyped 4/5 star females.
Herds with Surplus Animals interested in selling eligible females

If you would consider selling genotyped 4/5 star females please see the sales information below.
