Abstract

Recent calf crops and their sires and dams from the University Angus herd are currently being characterized for high-density SNP genotypes. Some 30 of the herd sires are being individually sequenced. This will be the first purebred beef herd to be so characterized and the data will aid many research and graduate teaching programs, and improve predictions of breeding performance at State and National levels.
