AgSource Genetic Selection Guide Offers Progeny Projections

AgSource’s groundbreaking Genetic Selection Guide (GSG) provides producers with the power to maximize herd genetics while enhancing the herd of the future. The report ranks animals in the herd based on Net Merit Dollars (NM$) and records both genotypic and phenotypic information.

Information about cows is separated from heifer information, resulting in two separate, ranked reports. In addition, a third report for progeny (expected offspring from cows bred and confirmed pregnant) is now available to review calves that are due to be born in the upcoming nine months. Producers choosing any of these three reports have the choice of receiving them as paper reports or accessing the information via the website.

The Genetic Selection Guides for Cows and Heifers are updated three times a year after each USDA sire proof run. Producers can choose to receive information on cows, heifers or both, based on information needs. The Genetic Selection Guide for Progeny is updated more frequently as part of the regular test day reports because it is based on breeding records and pregnancy confirmations reported on each test day.

For more information, talk with your local DHI field technician, contact AgSource at 608-845-1900 or visit www.agsource.com/GeneticSelectionGuide.
