New HerdPlus Dairy Sire Advice – Now Live

ICBF have just launched a new and improved version of the HerdPlus Dairy Sire Advice Application today. Sire Advice is an application that is available to all dairy HerdPlus users. This application will allow farmers to select the bulls they wish to use for the breeding season and match these bulls to the most suitable cows.

The new sire advice will include features such as:

  • Select females for crossbreeding, selective/contract mating, beef mating and culling.
  • Conformation traits now included in sire allocations.
  • The crossbreeding option is used to maximise heterosis
  • New and improved bull selector options.

Farmers are reminded to run sire advice before Monday 2nd April so as selections can be included in breeding charts.

If you have any queries or feedback for the HerdPlus team on the Dairy Sire Advice or any other report or application, please call 023-8820452 or email
