Beef Cornerstone Breeding Club

Beef Cornerstone facilitates the testing of Genus ABS Beef sires through our Beef Calving Survey Programme in the UK. This programme enables us to  provide reliably proven sires that deliver and meet our  customers’ needs.

Each year we test in the region of 20 young beef sires, and this number continues to grow annually. In the UK, we currently have over 800 customers  actively testing our young beef sires, keen to be first to access the genetics of the future.

The majority of beef sires  tested through the Beef Calving Survey programme have been sourced from herds that we have developed  relationships with over many years. More recently, we have started to breed sons from our very best proven beef sires in the  Genus ABS stud, these sires are known as NuEra sires.

For more information about our line up of Young Beef Sires that are currently on survey – click here.
