Add a Maternal Edge to your herd!

The Maternal Edge Female Profile is a low-density panel to be used by producers as a sorting tool for Gelbvieh influenced comerical females.

Maternal Edge Female Profile-$26.00

This panel has a heavy emphasis on maternal characteristics but includes end-products traits as well.
Traits included in the panel: calving ease, maternal calving ease, weaning weight, yield grade, marbling, and carcass weight. These traits are measured for the female against the entire Gelbvieh population with Molecular Breeding Values (MBVs) and results will be recieved in a one to ten score for each trait.

Parent verification can also be done with this panel at no additional charge, if the option is selected and sire and dam are on file with the AGA.
