Sort-GateSM: A Dairy Female Sorting Tool
While the Calf MathSM program helps you determine how many replacements are needed to meet your breeding goals, the Sort-GateSM program helps you identify which animals to get replacements from and which to breed for other purposes (or not at all). It’s your customizable female sorting tool.
Offered through GENEX consultants, the Sort-GateSM program ranks each cow, heifer or calf based on genomic data, pedigree information and/or on-farm performance data. Once ranked on an index that best meets your needs – i.e., a customized index or industry index - females can be sorted for different breeding purposes. For instance, some females may be designated for beef semen to produce a beef x dairy cross calf, while others will be inseminated with high genetic merit GenChoice™ sexed semen to produce a valuable replacement.
