Join Michelle Axford as she takes us through what the ABV’s mean for your business.
Michelle Axford is undertaking a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in quantitative genetics at La Trobe University.

Lately, she has returned to the role of chief calf rearer at the dairy farm operated in partnership with her husband, Michael.
Australian Breeding Values(ABV’s) are an estimate of the genetic merit of dairy cows and bulls. ABVs measure the traits or characteristics she is likely to pass on to her offspring and allow farmers to compare the genetic merit of cows betweenAustralianherds.
