The Genomics for Commercial Angus PDS continues to provide us with interesting revelations. In this update we look at how selecting replacement heifers with genomics adds significant value to your cull/surplus heifers.
Learn about the insights discovered and discussed by project participants in our Spring 2021 update.
We built a tool to help commercial breeders evaluate their recent genetic progress. It’s free to use.
The Genomics PDS is up and running. Learn about the project background and plans.
Genomics is actually a pretty broad term referring to a range of technologies that provide information about an animal’s genetics by analysing and interpreting the animal’s DNA.
Genetic progress in self-replacing beef herds generally moves quite slowly. New genomic products have the potential to speed up genetic gain by providing insight to the traits of future breeders that are otherwise invisible.
