Date/Time: 2/11/2023   2:45:00 PM - 3:30:00 PM
Speaker: Troy Rowan Knoxville TN
Objective of Talk This presentation will focus on practical ways that producers can leverage genomics to improve their cowherd. I will discuss expected progeny differences (EPDs) and how genomic tests increase their accuracy for making breeding decisions in seedstock herds and for sire selection in commercial herds. Additionally, I will discuss the increasing role that genomics is playing in commercial heifer selection.
