Ginfo is Australia’s national reference herd for genetic information. It is a large-scale genotyping project to provide genetic and performance information to increase the reliability of Australian Breeding Values (ABVs) and indices.
Ginfo includes detailed information on more than 50,000 cows from over 100 herds across Australia including their genotypes, classification scores and performance data from herd testing and has been responsible for significant increases in the reliabilities of genomic breeding values.
DataGene this week as announced an expansion of the Ginfo Project to 150 herds during the 2018/19 year and is calling for expression's of interest from farmers wishing to join the project.
Herds are selected on the basis of the quality and quantity of data you record. Check out the attached fact sheet to understand more on the data requirements
