Patoka beef and sheep farmer Patrick Crawshaw has been selected as one of the initial participants in a programme to demonstrate and increase the uptake of high-quality genetics in the beef industry.
As quoted in Farmers Weekly, INZB spokesperson Gemma Jenkins says: “We’re on a mission to give breeders and farmers genetic tools to help produce great-tasting beef and drive production efficiency.”
Says Patrick Crawshaw: “As a farmer, I welcome the openness of the project … I want to play my part in challenging and stimulating the beef industry and create gains for the sector.”
