Accuracy of selection = Precision with which genetic merit is estimated
Genomic evaluations are considerably more reliable than Parent Average
Selection Intensity = Level of superiority of parents of the next generation
More males and females can be screened efficiently through genotyping to identify elite animals
Genetic Variation = Relative differences among animal as controlled by genetic factors
Generation Interval = Average age of parents when their offspring are born
Genomic-tested young sires are available for A.I. at 1 year of age vs. 4 to 5 for progeny-tested bulls
Genomic testing and selection provides these benefits for dairy producers worldwide.
