Genetic Hub

We are pleased to advise the Genetic Hub has now commenced. Whilst it is still in the early stages we would like to introduce the new staffing team.

Kylie Winnell will be the General Manger, operating the business and managing the accounts.
Eliza Borchardt will commence as a registrar and will be available Monday to Wednesday
Kayla Preston will commence as a registrar and will be available Monday to Thursday
Rachael Hancock will commence as a registrar and will work part time.
All of the staff are highly experienced in their fields and will be able to assist with any of your enquiries.

The new business will provide finance and data administration, registrar and member services for all three societies, creating a single business model will allow the societies to provide greater efficiency and effectiveness for members.

“From the breeders view point very little will change externally, Genetic Hub will continue to provide the same services currently offered by your Society” K Winnell said.
The new entity would not be responsible for breed unique strategic or technical services.
Each society will maintain its own independence, however services such as accounts, registrations, inventory, DNA services and all other services will be provided by Genetic Hub.
The majority of these services are duplicated by each Society, a single business model will provide greater efficiencies.
While this model was new for Australia, similar models had proved extremely effective in New Zealand, where their Performance Beef Breeders (PBB) platform, operates along similar lines.
Given the impacts of the recent drought, this process is considered important, however it is also critical that each society be able to deliver improved services to members as a result.
Genetic Hub is managed by a board consisting of two current board members from each Society, the board will continue to provide updates to all members.

The key to the Shorthorn breeds advantage lies in their balanced genetic profile, driven by market participation that has been developed and refined, after more than 200 years of genetic selection under Australian conditions.
