Ideal Commercial Cow™ Index
Over the years, the dairy industry has changed, economics have changed and your demands in dairy cattle genetics have changed as well. Today, your herd requires genetics that excel in feed efficiency, health, fertility and production.
As cooperative members, you shared this need with us and asked for a genetic index that met your needs. That’s why we created the Ideal Commercial Cow™ (ICC$™) index, a sire ranking tool published exclusively by GENEX for Holstein and Jersey producers. The ICC$™ index meets the unique needs of each breed in today's commercial dairy environment.
What makes the Holstein and Jersey versions of the ICC$™ index unique?
» Multiple Sources: Data sources include the Council on Dairy Cattle Breeding (CDCB), Canadian Dairy Network (CDN) and the GENEX dairy research database.
» Economic Based: Data and traits used are directly tied to economic impact on the farm.
» Real-time and Flexible: Can be modified to reflect economic changes, to address emerging trends or to add new traits of economic impact.
» Easy-to-use Sub-indexes: Sub-indexes enable you to narrow genetic emphasis to specific areas of farm management.
