New agsource report monitors inbreeding, genetic progress

Genomic testing and sexed semen offer two new ways for dairy producers to accelerate genetic progress in their herds. However, at this rapid pace, how do you know if you are maximizing genetic progress while managing inbreeding? AgSource's new Genetic Summary Report answers this question and more.

The GSR was developed by AgSource to assist producers in monitoring and managing their breeding programs. The first of its kind, the GSR is a four-page analytical tool that examines the genetic makeup within the herd, genetic progress, performance benchmarking and inbreeding through a combination of 13 tables and graphs. The report's extensive benchmarks allow producers to measure how well they are doing compared to other herds.

Inbreeding is the hidden thief of genetic progress. Monitoring current inbreeding level and risk for future inbreeding is critical to establishing an effective program that manages inbreeding while maximizing genetic progress.

The GSR allows breeders to see a historic trend of inbreeding in the herd, the top 10 most genetically prominent bulls in the herd and a distribution of inbreeding levels in cows and heifers. This report includes information from genomically-tested cows and heifers (if applicable) and is available three times per year to AgSource members who record official animal identification and herd sires. All genetic information is obtained through the Council on Dairy Cattle Breeding and is available only to herds enrolled in DHI.

When combined with the AgSource Genetic Selection Guide reports (Cows, Heifers and Progeny), AgSource members and AI representatives have four state-of-the-art tools available to monitor a herd's genetic program and make the most informed replacement and breeding decisions.

Visit www.agsource.com/GSR to see sample reports and learn more about each of the tables and graphs within. To enroll your herd or ask further questions about the AgSource Genetic Summary or Selection Guide, email Erin Berger, associate vice president outreach, training and sales support (eberger@agsource.com), or contact customer service at 800-236-4995.
