AN270: The Use and Economic Value of the 3K SNP Genomic Test for Calves on Dairy Farms

Figure 2. Value of the 3K genomic test per kept calf, depending on how many calves are kept and the range of pre-ranked calves tested with the 3K genomic test. All calves are pre-ranked for breeding value of NM$ with 34% reliability. The 3K genomic test is applied to a fraction of the pre-ranked calves (0% is the highest pre-ranked calf for NM$, and 100% is the lowest pre-ranked calf for NM$).
