NALF launched genomic-enhanced EPDs in the fall of 2015, providing GE-EPDs for all Limousin and Lim-Flex animals that have completed DNA testing for genomic profiles.
The advantage to animals with GE-EPDs is increased EPD accuracy values on many traits equivalent to having 8-20 progeny. This adds greatly to the predictability in selection for genetic merit of young, unproven seedstock. Animals that are genomic-enhanced will have the NALF GE-EPDs displayed on their animal detail screen and performance reports in the NALF-DigitalBeef platform. Traits that are genomic-enhanced are highlighted in yellow on these reports.
