Date/Time: 2/19/2022   1:30:00 PM - 2:15:00 PM
Speaker: Troy Rowan Knoxville Tennessee
Objective of Talk This session will cover a wide range of genetics and genomics topics that will enable veterinarians to consult commercial cattle producers making breeding decisions. Starting with defining a breeding goal, we will walk through the available selection tools aimed at reducing risk and accelerating genetic progress. This will include EPDs, genomic tests, and economic selection indexes.
