What is HerdOptimizer Go?

HerdOptimizer Go uses a genomic test to reveal the genetic potential of your female animals. The outcome consists of breeding values based on the Dutch system for over 50 traits related to milk production, health, practice proven feed efficiency scores and conformation. This will give you a reliable prediction of the performance of the animals in the future. CRV also provides unique CRV breeding indicators for health and efficiency.

The reliability of a genomic test is comparable with the performance of a third parity cow (65-70%). Besides the breeding values, the genomic test also gives insight in the presence of specific genetic traits such as red factor, polled, A2-milk and kappa casein. The results of the genomic tests are a reliable basis to determine which calves to rear and to improve your matings.

The combination of HerdOptimizer Go and SireMatch enables you to rank your animals based on your breeding goal, which helps you to make breeding decisions for your herd. You will receive all the genetic information per animal in a clear leaflet.
