Pregnancy Success % by C ValueThis chart shows above average pregnancy rates in the CBV herd for cycles 1, 2 and 3 eg If the average pregnancy test was 80%, C1 group has 95% pregnant, C2 - 91%, C3 - 84%, C4 - 69%, C5 - 54%. CBV has identified which cattle work early and they are multiplying at an impressive rate.

This chart is best viewed with Chart No. 1, “Control vs Out of Control”, illustrating Gross margin per cow in a financial year. The $values will vary from year to year but the ratio relationship stands scrutiny across many regions in Northern Australia.

“CBV Brahman pregnancy percentages relative to the herd mean”

Our CBV policy is to relay whole herd data in a transparent form, illustrating our trajectory of genetic progress, based on innovative management, and low cost inputs. Cows conceiving in the first three weeks of October, November and December are favoured in our selection process, with 84 days exposed to bulls. C4 cows have 63 days mated, and C5 cows are mated for 42 days respectively.

On a whole herd basis “Cow Days Exposed” to bulls averaged 71 days this year.

CBV values cattle that work early and fast.
