Red Book Plus/MultiMateTM is a PC-based sire selection software program that gives users a tool to select bulls that meet their individual breeding goals, using information on over 180 different traits. Red Book Plus/MultiMate allows you to select from the almost 1,000 AI sires currently available in the U.S. The program is updated three times per year, after each genetic update.

There is a complete overview of each sire with screens showing all genetic values, changes in values from the last sire summary, linear traits, a 3-generation lineage pedigree, daughter averages and much more. Color graphs make the information easy to see and understand.

The new version also has many new features including:

  • Ability to add young bulls into the database
  • Additional fields available for each sire, such as Daughter Calving Ease, Daughter Pregnancy Rate, and Daughter Still Birth percentage, among others.
  • Easier to view and sort selected sires
  • New mating feature allows the best cows from a herd to be chosen for a particular service sire
  • Many others!
