Upcoming webinar on genomics

Mark your calendar for Jan. 14 to hear Chad Dechow, Pennsylvania State University, review genomic technology and how genomics can be used as a herd management tool. FULL STORY »

Selective dairy breeding may prevent lameness, boost productivity

Dairies could increase their efficiency and improve the health of their herds if they considered lameness and hoof health when they develop breeding plans, suggests a new study led by UC Davis researchers. FULL STORY »

Genomics: Creating opportunities for all dairies

Genomic technology currently holds its greatest stakes within elite dairy cattle breeding programs, but many commercial dairy operations are finding tremendous value and return from mass genomic screening. FULL STORY »

Reduce sick cows through breeding

Traditionally, the dairy industry has focused on proper nutrition and management practices to prevent disease. Another method that is gaining popularity is the use of genetics to select for healthier cows with naturally superior immune responses. FULL STORY »

Good genetic merit for fertility matters

Research results published in the July Journal of Dairy Science demonstrate, for the first time, that genetic merit for fertility has pronounced effects on key reproductive parameters. FULL STORY »

Crossbreeding concept within the Holstein breed?

The key to achieving the maximum opportunity of genetic enhancement within the same breed is the careful, thoughtful and persistent identification and segregation of genetically similar individuals. FULL STORY »

Does genomic selection intensify inbreeding or help control it?

Inbreeding management can be easier with a program approach that utilizes genomic insights. FULL STORY »

Researchers study nutrition's role in genetic potential

A new study shows how nutrition affects genetic expression for milk, fat and protein yields. FULL STORY »

Genetic parameters: assessing several traits

A study completed by the University of Czech Republic estimated the genetic parameters for fertility traits and linear type traits in Holstein cows. FULL STORY »

Economics of the 3K SNP genomic test for calves
