I have a suggestion for the daughter proven proofs that they should implement right away to make everything more transparent.
They need to have a genomic % influence number on the proof. This should be easy to do and it will give us a better understanding how much genomics are influencing the daughter proven proofs of individual bulls. For example if a bull has 40 daughters in the milk proof it should show a 90% genomic influence number (or whatever it is) or if another bull has 10,000 daughters it should show that the genomic influence is only 3% (or whatever it is). As of today we have no clue how much genomics influence the daughter proven proofs. I keep hearing that the numbers are coming out very close to the genomic numbers…..ok, but if the genomic numbers are influencing those numbers by 75% of course they are going to be similar! They should have a genomic influence number for both the milk and type proofs. This would give genomics more credibility for many people and give everybody a better understanding on how much genomics influence all the numbers. I hope somebody takes a look at my suggestion!
