BSA & PTPR
Brown Swiss Advantage (BSA) and Production & Type Performance Registry (PTPR) are total and combined service programs that reduce cost to the breeder by encompassing the major sectors of the Brown Swiss Association. All Animals recorded with the Association are included under both programs. (This includes RF, ID, IDR, IE, CIE and official herd book registration animals.) To Participate in BSA or PTPR, breeders must be on official DHIR/DHIA test.
