Igenity® — Horned/Polled Analysis

Horned/Polled
The presence of horns in commercial cattle is known to cause performance losses, and damage to carcasses. Now producers can make selection decisions with the Igenity Horned/Polled Analysis. This analysis is currently available with the Igenity profile for the Hereford, Limousin, Charolais, Gelbvieh, Shorthorn, Simmental and also any of these breeds crossed with Angus.

Dr. Gill collected extensive data on cattle from each breed to ensure the markers identified are responsible for the presence or absence of horns. Markers for additional breeds are being validated and will be available soon.
