Genomic testing is the process of analysing a heifer's DNA to reliably predict her future performance in the herd.
Genomic testing helps farmers to:
- Save money on rearing costs by not rearing heifers that are unlikely to perform.
- Make more informed decisions on which heifers to sell.
- Significantly fast-track genetic improvement in the herd.
In the last 12 months the number of genomic tested heifers has more than doubled.This growth is expected to continue to the point where it becomes routine practice on most farms.
