Developed for Angus cattle in partnership with Angus Genetics Inc and available exclusively to members of Angus Australia and Angus New Zealand, the Angus GS genomic profile is all about Angus Cattle.
Improved Accuracy: Angus GS uses Angus-specific gene markers to provide breeders with a more accurate and reliable tool for predicting genetic traits in their herds. With over 22,000 informative new Angus-specific markers, this test is the ideal solution for any Angus breeder looking to invest in the future of their herd and breed.
Enhanced Fertility: Angus GS detects blocks of DNA scientifically associated with embryo health, enabling breeders to pinpoint genes that enhance fertility in their herds.
Better Feed Efficiency: Angus GS detects genetic regions that affect feed efficiency in the Angus breed, providing breeders with valuable insights into efficient feed conversion.
Improved Meat Quality: Angus GS contains standard tenderness markers plus genes that may influence meat quality in Angus cattle, enabling breeders to improve the quality of their beef.
Potential Markers for Health Traits and Environmental Adaptability: Angus GS includes potential markers for health traits and environmental adaptability, providing breeders with a head start on future opportunities.
These high-quality gene markers improve prediction accuracy, enabling breeders to better understand the inherited traits from all ancestors.
Using Allflex TSUs have several benefits including:
Quick and easy sample collection at any any.
Receive more data from a single sample, which can be stored for future testing or multiple tests.
Users must ensure that their RFID equipment is correctly configured for scanning TSU sample codes.
Tips for DNA TSU sampling
Be sure that if the animal has been freshly tattooed that all ink is avoided in the sample.
If sampling a newborn calf, be sure to wipe the ear clean so that no DNA is transferred from the dam.
Be sure that there is tissue within the TSU before releasing the animal, and that the tissue is submerged in the buffer.
TSUs can be stored for up to one year at room temperature.
Remember to note which sample belongs to which animal, and check with your breed association for their specific DNA collection process. Contact your Local Neogen Territory Manager or Customer Service for assistance or questions about Allflex TSUs and genomic testing solutions.
The Turnaround Time (TAT) depends on various factors, such as the time it takes for your sample to reach our laboratory in Queensland, sample type(s) whether it is TSU samples or hair follicles or blood samples and whether the test results are reported directly or to your breed society.
Please keep in mind that if we need to re-run your sample. We call this a retest. In that case, the TAT will of course be extended.
Angus GS stands for Angus Genomic Selection. This name reflects the aim of the genomic test to give Angus breeders and their customers a tool designed to guide whole-herd selection, mating management and breed-improvement decisions, as well as denoting the value of seedstock cattle.
