Evaluating Your Seedstock Herd
Every calf crop represents genetic progress in your seedstock operation, building on the best your operation has to offer. Take your selection decisions to the next level through genomic technology.
AGI’s suite of test options are used to establish GE-EPDs to measure genetic merit for breeding stock, and can also determine parentage or test for genetic conditions — important capabilities in the management of your herd.
Genomic testing technology has evolved since genomic profile results were first incorporated into Angus EPDs in 2010.
The hundreds of thousands of HD tests submitted by Angus breeders to date have helped improve
genomics programs to interpret markers, as well as the
GeneMax suite of tests for commercial users of Angus genetics.
The availability of several genomic profile options gives Angus cattle producers several
options in genomic testing, available through AGI’s partnering labs Neogen GeneSeek
and Zoetis and accessible through AAA Login
Determining which is right for your operation depends on several factors.
An advanced high density genomic testing option available for Angus cattle powered by Neogen GeneSeek, fully endorsed by Angus Genetics, Inc.
The first genomic test designed specifically for Angus cattle including potential markers for future trait selection.
The latest advancement in Angus genotyping technology from Zoetis, fully endorsed by Angus Genetics Inc.
A genotyping platform designed specifically for Angus breeders developed in partnership with AGI to provide all the necessary information for the Angus National Cattle Evaluation.
Note: Selecting which test and company is an individual decision, AGI may choose to upgrade
certain samples that were initially tested to higher density tests to maintain the accuracy of genomic programs.
