The newest tool in the Genetic Services portfolio—the ABS Genetic Audit is the perfect complement to GMS 2.0. Used in conjunction, they can optimize the return on your genetic investment. Similar to a report card, an annual Genetic Audit gives you an overview of where your herd’s genetics are NOW. Based on your goals, the Genetic Audit provides a baseline from which you can make future comparisons to see genetics in action like you’ve never seen before.
How does it work?
A Genetic Audit will segment your herd based on YOUR description of your ideal cow, or what you consider the best cow in your herd. Using a backup from your dairy management system or other recorded information, an analysis is conducted. The results will show you unprecedented insights into exactly HOW genetics are working in your herd, and predict the performance of your future herd based on heifer, calf, and current pregnancy information.
