CDCB-AJCA Genetic Evaluations

July 7, 2015: Monthly genomic evaluations posted in PDF file formats. Excel spreadsheets to be added by early afternoon.

For your convenience, this website now has three tabs for Bull reports:

  • A, F & G Bulls (A.I. Marketed Bulls), with separate sections for the Herd Register and Genetic Recovery / Jersey Expansion lists, then a section titled Reference / Locator Lists that includes the Expanded Type Tables, Top 10 Bulls Ranked by Category, Sire Conception Rate and reference lists (A.I. marketed bulls listed in NAAB code order and also in short name order).
  • Monthly Genomic Bulls, with separate sections for Herd Register and Genetic Recovery / Jersey Expansion reports, and a third section with young sire locator lists. Note: Genomic Evaluated Young Sires reports are updated the first Tuesday of each month.
  • All Bulls, where you will find the All Summarized Bulls report, plus the two historical reports released the first day of each official run.

Reports Added With April 2015 Official Evaluations

Animal registry status has been updated per action of the AJCA Board of Directors at its March meeting. These actions include:

  • A numeric code in brackets added to the registration names of OA Oomsdale Gordo Goldie Gratitude 11224922 and all descendants, with “Gratitude” labeled {1}, her progeny {2}, and continuing through six generations.
    • Example of third-generation descendant: GR Cal-Mart Dale Shah 3947{3}-ET
    • Example of fourth-generation descendant: O.F. TBone Judge{4}
     
  • Making the Jersey Expansion program for recording Jersey-crossbred animals retroactive to program implementation January 1, 1999. The recording system starts with a J1 female, with each successive generation sired by a Herd Register bull carrying the next level prefix (J2, J3, and so forth). Females may be recorded at all levels (J1 through J6), but males will only be recorded at the J4, J5 and J6 levels provided the bull and both parents are genotyped. Herd Register status is achieved by offspring of J6 and HR parents.

Most genetic evaluation reports have been split by animal registry status into two lists: (1) Herd Register status (HR, no prefix), and (2) eligible animals recorded through the Genetic Recovery and Jersey Expansion programs. The cutoff for the female Genetic Recovery-Jersey Expansion lists is determined by the lowest qualifying Jersey Performance Index™ (JPI) on the HR list.

AJCA animal recording programs, including tables showing the registry status based on parent statuses, are described here. For a summary of the March 2015 Board action, click here.
