Next up in the Cattlemen’s Webinar Series from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) is centered around genetics and specifically expected progeny differences or EDPs. Join experts January 18, 2018 at 7 p.m. CT for FAKE NEWS: EPDs Don’t Work.

There is a lot of fake news out there, and the perception that EPDs don’t work is one such piece of news. This webinar will look at the objective evidence supporting the fact that EPDs do work, and examine how their accuracy is impacted by pedigree, performance records, progeny data and genomic information. Alison Van Eenennam, PhD at the University of California – Davis and Matt Spangler, PhD at University of Nebraska – Lincoln will be leading the discussion.
