Service Description

Need help with understanding Expected Progeny Determination (EPD), your not alone. My services can help. I can provide a farm visit if distance is not too far or I can do an electronic evaluation of your herd and their EPDs. This evaluations would include an analysis of the positive and negative EPD traits values of your animals. Recommendations will be made how to use EPDs to enhance and improve your offspring given the EPDs of your specific animals. Included in this evaluation will be characteristics of sires you should look for given your animals EPDs and histogram results.

A written evaluation will be provided on all animals requested. If you own your own herd sire this is very important on determining pairing with your dams. Even if you only evaluate hour herdsires that can help determining optimal pairs based upon dam's histograms.
