Confident Selection. Genomic testing is applicable and very useful on both registered purebred and commercial dairy operations. It can improve decision-making for replacement heifer selection and allows you to feel confident that you have made the right selection decisions on your dairy. Using genomics can improve the rate of genetic progress by allowing you to make better mating decisions.
Reliable Information. Dairy genomics provides a reliable estimate of the animal’s true genetic potential very early in life. When the animal is only two months of age you can have information on how she will perform when she enters the milking herd. This information saves thousands of dollars that would be lost from choosing inferior heifers as replacements.
