Angus.Tech offers some great new features which could assist in finding the right bull.
Users are able to sort catalogues based on an individual breeding value, simply by clicking the pair of arrows located above the breeding value they are wanting to sort the catalogue by.
Users wanting to do more complex sorting and searching through sale catalogues can use Angus SaleSELECT™.
- Angus SaleSELECT™ has been developed to assist users in finding the right bull for their operation and enables users to search one or multiple currently listed catalogues for the criteria important to their bull purchasing decisions. To use Angus SaleSELECT™;
From the SaleSELECT™ webpage www.angusaustralia.com.au/angusselect, select Angus SaleSELECT™. Users do not need to be registered users of Angus.Tech to access sale catalogues or Angus SaleSELECT™.
- From the drop-down box, beside Sale, select the catalogue you want to search within. If there are multiple sales, once you have made your first selection, a plus sign will appear which you can click to add additional sale catalogues to your search. Once the catalogues to be search have been selected, users will click Proceed to animal selection criteria.
- Users will then be able to apply selection criteria, which can include;
a. Animal details, such as register or colour
b. Breeding criteria, such as searching for animals by a particular sire or out of a particular dam
c. Genetic tests results, such as being tested free of AM, CA, DD & NH
d. EBVs criteria, where users can put cut off limits for individual breeding values or percentile bands for any of the traits reported through Angus BREEDPLAN.
- Once all required criteria have been entered, users can complete the search by clicking Search.
Once all required criteria have been entered, users can complete the search by clicking Search.
Angus.Tech will then bring up all animals within the selected sale catalogues which meet the required selection criteria. In the event that no animals meet the criteria Angus.Tech will return no results.

To do this, users will need to open the sale catalogue and then select ‘Go to Report Centre’ from the search options.
