CDCB releases three types of genetic evaluations at various times – weekly, monthly, and triannual – to best serve the diverse needs of animal owners and stakeholders.
Genomic selection allows breeders to make accurate selection decisions at a much earlier age, even before the actual performance of the animal or its offspring can be measured.
CDCB publishes four selection indices that combine many traits into a single value that drives genetic progress, ranks animals and streamlines management decisions.
CDCB evaluations measure genetic variation for 50 traits important to dairy producers, with most U.S traits expressed as Predicted Transmitting Abilities, or PTAs.
CDCB, data partners and genomic nominators work diligently to transmit quality data through the U.S. system and expedite genetic and genomic evaluations for all relevant animals.
