INZB Beef Progeny Test Field Day: March 2024

Mark your calendars for this year's INZB Beef Progeny Test Field Day on Tuesday 5 March at Lochinver Station (our North Island Progeny Test site). Lochinver joined the programme as a host farm in 2022, enabling Simmental genetics to be included in the across-breed Progeny Test for the first time.
