A genomic test of your females on the NTM scale, is an advanced tool for you to use to ensure that you focus on the right females as parents to the next generation.
Genomic breeding values have higher reliabilities than pedigree index, and to be successful in the genetic progress of your herd the best tool to use is genomic selection.
The NTM Index ensures a balanced breeding between production and health, and the Nordic countries have a long tradition of breeding for health traits.
Using genomic selection on your females together with X-Vik sexed semen on your top heifers, will ensure you the highest possible progress of your herd. For the lower ranked females, you can use conventional semen and beef semen.
