Publication of Genomic Information

Reference ID:560

Whereas …

Whereas, Lactanet currently only publishes genomics from bulls under 3 years old if they are marketed by Lactanet member company.  But many bulls are imported privately by farmers who pay money to provide Lactanet with information through milk testing and classification;

Therefore …

Therefore, be it resolved that Lactanet should publish all genomic information on males and females that is available to them.

Reference information provided by Lactanet:

Genomic evaluations for bulls become official once the associated genetic evaluation fee is paid, which is routinely done by all A.I. companies that are Lactanet customers. There is no existing policy preventing any bull for which semen is privately imported by farmers from having an official Canadian genomic evaluation once the associated fee is paid. All genotyped females automatically have a published official evaluation.
