Measure True Genetic Merit with AJCA Genomic Services
Genomics adds power and precision to measure the true genetic merit of your Registered Jerseys™. Pedigree information by itself produces genetic PTAs for Jersey females at 40% Reliability, with average gains of 5% each when performance and progeny information is added.
When the DNA component is included, genetic evaluations achieve from 60% to 80% Reliability--earlier in life and without waiting for her own production and type information. Because time is money, genomic testing is a tremendous investment in your herd's profit potential and genetic marketing opportunities.
More than 2,400 Jersey owners have used the genomic services available through the American Jersey Cattle Association. The process is as simple as collecting the DNA sample, sending it to the lab, then applying the results of the evaluations. Learn More →
