Genetics and Genetic Resources

Our Goal ~ Provide Genetics and Genetic Resources that Maximize Your Profit

When it comes to establishing a profit-maximizing genetic program, the International Genetic Solutions (IGS) is the most powerful selection tool available to cattlemen. The breed associations that have chosen to be IGS partners, are companies that are serious about maximizing commercial cattlemen’s profit through genetics, regardless of breed or personal agenda.  

The profitability and success of your genetic program is our responsibility. We take this responsibility very seriously and utilize only the soundest science and research to deliver the world’s most powerful beef selection tools to commercial cattlemen.

These industry-leading partnerships have made IGS the largest and most powerful genetic evaluation in the world. Its multi-breed capability is tailor-made for cattle producers who are serious about profit. The IGS and its cooperators have used science to develop the world’s most useful EPDs and profit-driven selection tools.  This cooperation has allowed for unmatched research and industryfocused science. This large database and science-based research provides the best opportunity for commercial cattlemen to maximize profit through genetics.


Genetic Evaluation for Commercial Producers

When it comes to selecting replacement heifers or making culling decisions, many commercial producers are limited to evaluating their females phenotypically or a simple gate cut. The former isn’t likely to be much better than the latter and both are extremely primitive compared to the use of EPDs and economic indexes.  Many producers have collected extensive data on their animals and are faced with the daunting task of evaluating that data to make selection decisions. If you are a producer who collects data, a professional genetic valuation through International Genetic Solutions (IGS) would be of great benefit. This will result in EPDs and economic indexes on all your females allowing for the most accurate selection decision. In addition to genetic evaluation, the program provides on-line databasing and herd management software services.
