About Igenity Beef
Igenity® Beef utilizes DNA to predict genetic variation in both heifers and steers, providing an additional selection tool to cattle producers. Producers also use Igenity in the production of high-value feeder calves and to score commercial bulls being used as sires. Igenity Beef is the new profile replacing the Igenity Gold and Igenity Silver, consisting of 16 maternal, performance, and carcass traits plus parentage. The Igenity Beef dashboard and custom indexes are designed to help cow-calf producers make confident decisions about heifers they retain and develop for their breeding herd.
