Raising dairy heifers can be a significant expense, but with the help of DNA testing and animal genetic evaluations, you can enhance your animal selection process and improve your herd’s genetic potential. Genomic testing offers you the opportunity to make in-herd selection decisions with data that backs the physical records. This allows you to pinpoint various key traits for your herd to make more informed decisions to select and rank heifers while benchmarking your herd for production, type, and health against the breed average.
At Neogen, we offer various dairy genomic tests that cater to different needs. Our DNA tests are designed for the Australian and New Zealand dairy cattle industry, and we support Holstein, Jersey, Red, Guernsey, and Brown Swiss cattle breeds.
