CUSTOMIZED BREEDING FOR A NEXT GENERATION HERD
CRV has a long history of providing dairy producers with the tools they need to make smart decisions on their farms. HerdOptimizer is for any producer looking to easily customize their breeding goals, no matter what they may be.
The program uses the individual cow’s genetic makeup to determine the potential of her offspring and then selects the best matings to build upon strengths and improve weaknesses within the herd, while managing inbreeding and protecting against haplotypes and detrimental recessives.
Not only does HerdOptimizer capture the traditional U.S. genomic traits the dairy industry has become used to, it also includes more than 20 proprietary CRV HerdBuilder Traits such as hoof health, udder health, and robot efficiency.
