Seedstock Symposium To Focus On DNA And Genetics

The regions Livestock Producers have an opportunity to learn more about genetics and DNA testing at a two day symposium this week in Sioux Falls. SDSU Assistant Professor of Animal Genetics Dr. Michael Gonda says they’re bringing in experts in animal breeding and genetics to help producers find out about new advances in the seed stock industry and how it can benefit their operations.

Gonda says perhaps the biggest benefit of DNA testing is that it improves the accuracy of genetic selection for a producer’s herd.

Gonda says there will be producers panel at the symposium that will look at the strengths and limitations of DNA testing.  The symposium runs Thursday and Friday the SDSU Extension regional center in Sioux Falls. For more information go to I grow.org.
