Do you do any breed recording?

Yes. The Luing Society developed its own unique Dam Classificaiton System in 2004. This system involves a panel assessing the dams of potential stock bulls for various traits including locomotion, feet, udder and teats. For a bull to be approved for use in the pedigree herd book, its dam must have been assessed and have scored above the breed standard (5 out of 10). Recently the Society was awarded grant funding to investigate the potential development of this system and whether or not Estimated Breeding Values could be established to support it.
