Lincoln, NE /PRNewswire/ - Neogen Corporation (NASDAQ: NEOG) announced today that it has launched Igenity® Enhanced Dairy, a new and progressive genomic data management tool.
Igenity Enhanced Dairy is a new digital service that empowers dairy producers to make better selection and mating decisions. By integrating in-herd phenotypic data, pedigree information, and existing predicted transmitting abilities (PTAs) from the Council on Dairy Cattle Breeding (CDCB), the platform delivers a genomic evaluation of dairy cattle.
Producers are able to utilize the data provided by Igenity Enhanced Dairy to make an in-herd assessment of the genetic potential by pairing each animal's performance data with the results received from an Igenity Select profile. The ability to apply on-farm phenotype data to a standard genetic assessment leverages the management and geography of the individual animals to ultimately enable better decision-making.
"Neogen is thrilled to introduce a useful tool that contributes to the improvement of genetic selection in the dairy cattle market," said Dr. Victor Pedrosa, Neogen's Director of Genetic Prediction. "Data plays a crucial role in decision-making, and the Igenity Enhanced Dairy platform allows producers to take an additional step forward. The traditional genetic evaluations provided by the CDCB have significantly enhanced the genetic progress of several economically valuable traits. Now, with Igenity Enhanced Dairy, we are enabling an extra gain in the dairy selection process."
Neogen Genomics constantly provides high-quality data to assist with herd improvement and improve cattle operations, and the new Igenity Enhanced Dairy equips producers with valuable data and evaluates their herd's potential, assisting in making the most informed decisions.
