As a dairy producer using CLARIFIDE®, you will now be able to effectively and efficiently make management decisions with your results sooner and more frequently. The Council of Dairy Cattle Breeding (CDCB) has developed a method to calculate preliminary genomic predictions before official monthly evaluations are released. Official genomic data remains available the first Tuesday of most months. Now, preliminary evaluations are available to you every Tuesday.
What does this mean to you?
Customers who use CLARIFIDE will notice an improvement in the time between submitting a sample and receiving results, if samples are submitted on a weekly basis. Additionally, anyone who misses the monthly official-run cutoff will now have preliminary results to help make more timely management decisions until the official results are provided. These results also make the workload of genotyping laboratories more uniform, which gives you more flexibility as to when you submit your samples.
