Genomic Enhanced-EPDs
The past few years have seen a rise in the presence of genomic-enhanced EPDs, or GE-EPDs. GE-EPDs provide the opportunity to enhance selection decisions when they are used correctly in a selection program. But what are GE-EPDs, and perhaps more importantly, what information can they provide for the average producer? The following module will serve as a primer covering the basic principles behind GE-EPDs and some of the most common questions regarding the option to use genomic testing in selection decisions.
