Asbia confirms growth of 15.4% in Aberdeen Angus semen sales

Data released by the Brazilian Artificial Insemination Association (Asbia) indicate an increase of 15.4% in sales of Angus semen in Brazil. The report accounts for the sale of 4,268,968 doses (Angus and Red Angus) in 2015 compared with 3,697,501 in 2014.In the past six years, the breed has grown by 150%, well above the beef cattle average of 50%. The result, says the president of the Brazilian Angus Association, José Roberto Pires Weber, reflects the consolidation of the breed in Brazilian livestock farming and the significant advancement of industrial crossbreeding. "Angus accounts for more than half of the beef cattle semen sold in the country (51%). We are growing and this is a reflection of serious work done and the results achieved by farmers," he says. In 2015, 8,274,084 doses of beef cattle semen wee traded in Brazil.
