Genomic Results for Bulls

Reference ID:622


Whereas (In the majority of cases), producers pay to have their animal genomic tested.

Whereas the genomic results bring a lot of information on an animal and can increase its value.

Whereas the best time to sell a bull is when he is ready for service and that generally happens after the age of 1.

Whereas we presently do not have access to the updated genomic results of our bulls between the age of 1 and 3.


Therefore, we ask that Lactanet (CDN) continue to calculate and to make available to breeders the updated genomic results of bulls beyond the age of 1.

Reference information provided by Lactanet:

This issue has been considered and supported, in principle, by the GEB and the Lactanet Board. A process to implement this recommendation still needs to be prioritized and established that also recognizes the existing fee structure applicable to A.I. bulls for which fees must be paid prior to 12 months of age.
