Cattle are DNA tested for registration and GeneSTAR MVP. The following cattle are utilised within our stud and come with record high markers.
Several criteria are used in the search for Feed Efficiency as Genomic testing, EBV, EPD, eye evaluation, skin texture, muscle attachment to the thoracics, oily skin and progeny softness. High DNA cattle are eagerly sourced.
Professor Mike Goddard, (Melbourne Genomics Conference, 2011) said genomic selection in cattle will become a major part in livestock improvement and it will be important for global livestock industries to remain competative. 50,000 panel now being utilized.
