  • Inbreeding levels can be calculated for every mating

Testomonials
WebMate has been trialled by a number of farmers, with Tim Gue of the Huddlestone herd commenting:

“The new WebMate is easy to use, and ensures the best matings with the semen in stock, you choose the type of cow you want to breed and let WebMate do the rest. Farmers know what sort of cows suit their farm, WebMate is totally independent and will choose the best matings to achieve those cows from current semen stock or allows you to see which of a group of bulls are best suited to your cows. The inbreeding indicator is going to be even more important in the future”

The program is easy to use, with Andrew Williams from Rhadyr Farms Ltd commenting:

“I found the new WebMate programme very functional and easy to use with straight forward and easy to understand instructions, I will definitely be using it as an essential tool in future breeding decisions and mating of our herd.”
