NEW IN 2022! *Phenotype and Genotype Show*
The Phenotype and Genotype Show was created for juniors to show their heifers in an additional competition while providing an educational opportunity to learn about the value of Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) as a part of the process in selecting seedstock.
Animals entered in the PGS will be evaluated under a system that requires both genotypes and phenotypes to be considered. The results will be a composite score where the genotype (EPDs) placing and phenotype placings will be used, the weighted final placing will be comprised of 60% Genotype placing and 40% Phenotype Placing.
