AbacusBio to assist in DIGAD's development and operation

The Ministry for Primary Industries has recently granted formal consent to transfer the Dairy Core Database to DairyNZ this year, which will be part of the Dairy Industry Good Animal Database (DIGAD).

In addition to Livestock Improvement Corporation, Datacom and Insomnia Security, AbacusBio will be assisting DairyNZ in developing and supporting the database's development and operation.

DairyNZ's chief executive Dr Tim Mackle says, "We’ll have new systems and processes to access data for industry research and support the routine operation and development of animal evaluation.”
