A Strategic Breeding Decision-Making Tool

Sort-Gate provides producers with the information needed on dairy cows and heifers to make strategic breeding decisions. Sort-Gate helps producers sort dairy females and ultimately define which females are appropriate for different breeding strategies (GenChoice™ sexed semen, beef semen, conventional semen).

This new service is customizable, enabling dairy producers to determine which genetic values to use when sorting females - the Ideal Commercial Cow (ICC$) index, Lifetime Net Merit (LNM$) or a custom index. Sort-Gate incorporates pedigree information and genomic data, and in the future, the opportunity to add on-farm performance records!

  2. USE CALF MATH to compare potential breeding strategy outcomes and determine the most effective combination of semen products.
  3. USE SORT-GATE to sort cows and heifers and define which females are appropriate for each semen product.
  4. DEVELOP PROTOCOLS for mating and breeding to get the preferred semen product into the designated cows and heifers.
