Igenity Feeder brings genomic testing to a new sector of the beef industry, empowering producers at the stocker, backgrounder, and feedlot phase to make more informed decisions based on the genetic potential of feeder cattle. With Igenity Feeder, you can easily verify a calf crop’s genetic potential for growth and carcass characteristics using the Igenity Terminal Index. Not only can genetically superior cattle earn you a premium on sale day, but cattle tested on Igenity Feeder also receive Neogen’s new Days on Feed (DOF) Index to help feedlot operators group lots of cattle according to their optimal days on feed. Paired with Neogen’s 17-day turnaround time guarantee*, never before has this type of information been so fast, accurate, and affordable.

Now included with Igenity® Feeder, BCHF Individual Risk Factor is designed to categorize cattle from no risk (1x) to increased risk (15x) according to the number of markers associated with bovine congestive heart failure (BCHF). Identifying which feedlot cattle have both risk factors may help identify the smallest group of animals that will benefit from alternative management to limit BCHF development and choose the appropriate marketing windows. Note, not all cattle with both risk factors will develop BCHF.

Profile Detail Igenity Feeder reports both an Igenity Terminal Index and Neogen’s new Igenity DOF Index. The Igenity Terminal Index is designed to rank cattle according to their genetic potential for terminal traits while the Igenity DOF Index ranks cattle according to their genetic potential for gain and fattening. A higher DOF index value will indicate animals with increased gain potential, and fatten at lower weights, resulting in fewer estimated DOF.
