Neogen Introduces Mobile-friendly Dairy Genomic Website


Neogen has introduced a mobile-friendly website that puts the power of the latest dairy genomic technology in the palm of your hand.

Neogen’s new Igenity Dashboard is a customizable website ( that allows users to easily view and manage genomic data on personal computers, phones and tablets. Individual users can customize genomic data using graphs, charts, and indexes, and then use that data, for example, to choose the best animals in the herd to use as heifer replacements.

“We named our new website the Igenity Dashboard because it provides essential genomic information to a dairy producer at a glance, and it helps drive profitable production,” said Dr. Stewart Bauck, general manager of Neogen’s GeneSeek operations. “The latest dairy genomic technology provides a tremendous amount of useful information on a single animal, a producer’s entire herd, or even animal and herd comparisons against database averages for a given breed. The challenge is then managing that information to make better decisions on the farm. Igenity Dashboard was developed to make it easier to make those better decisions, and positively impact future performance and profits.”

Igenity Dashboard was designed for use with Neogen’s Dairy Heifer Program genomic tests. These tests include Igenity-Select, which is validated by the USDA-AGIL and provides Council for Dairy Cattle Breeding (CDCB) results consisting of an evaluation of a heifer on over 45 select traits; Igenity-Essential, which doesn’t require dairymen to provide the information necessary to nominate an animal for the CDCB program, and includes an evaluation on 15 essential traits; as well as Igenity-Elite and Igenity-Prime.

Results from genomic tests can deliver highly reliable genomic predictions on a variety of traits. This includes health traits such as net merit, pregnancy rate, productive life in months and somatic cell score as well as yield traits, such as milk, fat pounds, fat percentage, protein pounds and protein percentage.
