Herd Management Decisions on the JHL

Until DNA technology allows us to read, interpret and utilize each animal's entire DNA sequence we will be forced to continue to use secondary methods to project the individual animal's potential. The JHL uses numerous secondary methods in an attempt to "shave" off outlier genetics. Some of those secondary methods are:

  • Fertility Ironsides Brownie - Still active at 13 years
  • Forced Efficiency
  • Disposition and Phenotype
  • Breed specific Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs)
  • Linear Measurements
  • Ultrasound technology
  • Spot DNA tests
  • Rail Data

Each of these secondary methods involves tracking in order to Know Thy Cow.

Soli Deo Gloria
