Greg’s thoughts towards fertility are unparalleled. The potential of what Popplewell Composites is offering with its genomics is incredible. Research shows fertility is 3 times more important than weight gain and fertility is what Popplewell Composites delivers.

The Australian Beef Co-operative Research Centre (Beef CRC)
A team of world leading economists and scientists in 2003 calculated that tropical beef composites provide an additional $24 gross margin benefit per Adult Equivalent (AE) stocking unit over purebred bos indicus in a grass fed system by providing extra growth and fertility whilst maintaining a high level of adaptation. They also calculated an additional $43 to $47 gross margin benefit per AE in grain finishing systems through increased rate of weight gain and meat quality grade premiums. Actual beef CRC trials also demonstrated this and a 14% increase in branding rate. Popplewell genetics have been bench marked using CRC reference sires to be even more superior for Fertility, Growth and Carcass traits.
