Igenity® Beef

Genetic Tools To Improve Your Bottom Line

You know your cow herd better than anyone else. All those countless hours spent planning your breeding rotation, the best bulls to use, which replacements to keep — it sure didn’t come easy.

So, let Igenity® take care of what’s underneath the hide.

Igenity + Envigor is an advanced,  accurate and economical DNA profile that reveals the genetic potential you need to build a stronger herd. Paired with the industry's first heterosis tool, Enivgor. Increased Igenity + Envigor scores can lead to greater fertility in your females and more profit at the rail. Igenity is now powered by International Genetic Solutions, the largest multi-breed genetic evaluation anywhere. Read more.

Igenity Indices: Selection Made Easy

Indices allow for selection pressure on multiple traits at the same time, depending on a producer’s breeding objectives. Producers today are likely to believe more than a single trait is important. While Igenity Profiles provide index values centred around total production, maternal, or terminal breeding programs, the beef dashboard allows individuals to also design an index tailored to their needs.
