Sheep Genomics Webinar Series flyerSheep Genomics Webinar Series

With the introduction of genomic-enhanced estimated breeding values (GEBVs), 2021 will be the dawn of a new age in sheep breeding for the US sheep industry. Genomic-enhanced estimated breeding values have the potential to improve genetic progress through more accurate identification of parentage, carriers of genetic conditions, and improved accuracy of estimated breeding values. Join us to learn more about this new technology and how you can utilize it in your operation.
