The Australian Dairy Herd Improvement Scheme publishes the Good Bulls Guide twice yearly to list top bulls from Australia and around the world. Australian Breeding Values are used to organise bulls by the most common breeding objectives. Dairy farmers can select bulls from the Good Bulls Guide with confidence that the information is independent and backed by strong science.

Using this guide is simple. Just choose your index:

  • BPI that maximises profit through a balance of production, type and health traits

  • HWI that fast tracks fertility, mastitis resistance and feed efficiency

  • TWI that fast tracks type
