Replacement Heifers Can Now Be Profiled with DNA Test from IGENITY

Looking at a replacement heifer, it's impossible to know how she will perform. But, for twenty bucks, you can now sample her DNA and find out five indicators/predictors of how she will fit into your mama cow herd.

Producers can help take some of the risk out of their management decisions by incorporating the IGENITY profile for replacement heifers into their existing selection tools. "Producers usually do a visual sort of their potential replacement heifers," says Dr. Kevin DeHaan of IGENITY. "With the IGENITY profile for replacement heifers, producers can now take a look on the inside to make more informed decisions on their breeding, selection and management needs."

Through the new cost-effective DNA offering from IGENITY, cow/calf producers can receive analyses on five economically important traits:

Maternal Calving Ease
Average Daily Gain
Percent Choice

Dr. DeHaan is our guest on today's Beef Buzz, telling us more about this important DNA test for Replacement Heifers.
