Would you like to learn more about our genomically enhanced EPDs?

Last December, Dr. Lauren Hyde presented ASA’s experience with blending genomic data into our genetic predictions at BIF’s 10th Genetic Prediction Workshop in Kansas City. Dr. Hyde discussed the history of GE-EPDs within the ASA, the discovery of a problem with GE-EPD methodology that artificially made animals with good EPDs look even better and animals with poor EPDs look even worse, and the steps ASA and the National Beef Cattle Evaluation Consortium have taken to address the problem.
