Important news for the genetic and genomic evaluation of cows and heifers

In the index evaluation of April 2019, important news were introduced in the genetic and genomic evaluation of the female population.
Now cows and heifers are evaluated using the onestep method which, in addition to the information on bulls so far based on genomic evaluation, also uses information on the female population to improve the accuracy of the indices.
Furthermore, the evaluation for protein and fat percentages has been radically changed: now the calculation is based directly on the analysis data of the individual milk samples.

More details in the articles published in the latest issue of the magazine “la razza Bruna” (onestep) (percentages)
