Before you Invest in EnVigour HX™
EnVigour HX™ is a genomic tool that will facilitate the development of an optimal crossbreeding strategy on your operation as long as the goals for your herd are defined. Examples of hybrid vigour goals include:
- Maximize the Vigour Score to maximize hybrid vigour and improve performance of lowly heritable and fitness traits,
- Maintain a certain percentage of a breed in your herd to optimize breed complimentarity or to qualify for a branded beef program.
To develop an optimal crossbreeding strategy, an understanding of the positive attributes provided by the different breeds and how you want to balance those features in your bulls, cows, and calves simplifies the planning process.
