Type & Genetic Progress Committee

CHairperson - Ollie Abblitt

The Type & Genetic Progress Committee is comprised of 5 members of the Guernsey Cattle Society of Australia Inc with one member nominated as the chairperson of the committee. The primary objective of the committee is to administer the type classification scheme by monitoring measurements on the linear scale, making the appropriate adjustments to the scale and approving excellent cows in conjunction with Holstein Australia. They also aim to monitor type ratings on sires in conjunction with DataGene and oversee administration of star brood cow and superior type & performance (STP) awards. Finally, they oversee the annual photographic competition run by the Guernsey Cattle Society of Australia Inc. 

If you have any questions or suggestions for the Type & Genetic Progress Committee then please contact Ollie Abblitt on 0427 432 776 or email ollie.abblitt@gmail.com
