Event description

Description

Join Delta Genomics for an evening in Eckville in collaboration with the Grey Wooded Forage Association to learn more about EnVigour HX, the first made in Canada genomic tool for commercial beef producers. Supper will be provided followed by the information session.


EnVigour HX is a new genomic tool designed for crossbred beef cattle breeders. The tool provides parentage, breed composition, and a Vigour score which measures hybrid vigour (heterosis) in the animals. The benefits of hybrid vigour are no secret in the cattle industry, as increased hybrid vigour leads to improved performance in fitness traits such as fertility, survivablility, adaptability, and even efficiency. EnVigour HX is the the first tool that will allow beef producers to measure and effectively manage the hybrid vigour in their herds, and maintain that hybrid vigour into the future through an understanding of the breed composition of the cows relative to the bulls.
