why dna
Why DNA?
  • Traits that are difficult and/or expensive to measure and have a large economic impact
    • Carcass traits
    • Feed Efficiency
    • Fertility
    • Immune response
    • Tenderness
    • Longevity

“ Marker-assisted selection has the potential to greatly improve how quickly we can make genetic progress in many traits for which we do and do not currently have EPDs.”

Dr. Mark Enns, Colorado State University June 2009 Brangus Journal

slide17
Producers in Australia are raising Wagyu cattle to achieve the marbling and soft fat that the Japanese prefer.

Why DNA?
  • SNP Parentage
    • Added seedstock value
    • Multi-sire pastures
    • Genetic evaluation for commercial cow-calf producers

Salvage valuable genetics.

why dna3
Why DNA?

When combined with performance records, genomic data improved selection response 20% to 41%, depending on the trait1
