Signet lists its top breeders

SIGNET has published the names of its top 164 performing beef breeders in its Excel club booklet.

Over 1000 producers now record using Signets beefbreeder scheme and the Excel club represents the top 164 herds.

"To qualify breeders must have average herd beef values two points above the breed average," explains Signets Claire Heley.

"The club booklet, therefore, recognises those producers who have recorded diligently and used EBVs to improve herd genetics," she says.
