Technical Abstract: In his presentation, Dr. Kuehn described approaches for using information garnered through developments in genomics to improve the accuracy of genetic evaluation. He considered the history of these molecular-based techniques, including their strengths and potential weaknesses, and his experiences with their widespread adaptation by the beef cattle industry. Dr. Kuehn then described how the benefits of genomics harvested by the beef industry help identify opportunities for sheep producers.
