Reference ID:567

Whereas …

Whereas, the milk producers pay to produce and supply the data allowing for the calculation of genetic indexes; and,

Whereas, a very large proportion of the Lactanet financing comes from dairy producers or organizations funded by producers (breed associations, A.I. units, DFC, etc.); and,

Whereas, today’s farms can have access to an array of tools allowing them to increase their efficiency and whereas those tools depend on data for their functioning;

Therefore …

Therefore, it is moved that Lactanet recognize that the genetic indexes obtained through the collection of data on our farms also belong to the producers and that the producers can consent to sharing these data with the stakeholders of their choice.

Reference information provided by Lactanet:

At the current time genetic indexes are calculated for all Canadian animals registered in a breed association herdbook and are publicly available.
