Genetic Assessment – Validation, guidance and intelligence for genetic progress.
As much as we’d like it to be otherwise, genetic progress cannot be seen overnight. Because of this, it can be hard to see the improvement in your herd on a day-to-day basis.

Genetic assessment is a way to validate that genetics are moving in the right direction. This process is done by analyzing an animal’s pedigree or genomic information. This is a way to assure that the next generation is better than the last when comparing traits determined in your initial genetic plan.
Knowing that not all cows are created equal, it also allows us to help you to rank your animals from best to worst. This can help you then segment the herd and identify which females will be used to make your next generation.
Whether you’re evaluating your herd on your own or relying on a genetic advisor, genetic assessment is a crucial step to keep you on track with your genetic goals.
