Cattle Herd Consulting Services
We will quantify the potential of dairy cows and provide an appropriate breeding plan
NOSAWA offers genome testing to analyze the genetic information of dairy cows.
By quantifying the potential of female cows numerically, we can efficiently develop suitable breeding plans.
Additionally, our mating consultation services at NOSAWA help address the increasingly complex management of inbreeding coefficients year after year.
What can be learned from genome testing and how to utilize it
What is 'genome testing'?
Analyzing the genetic information of dairy cows allows for the quantification of improvement factors such as the capabilities, body traits, and management characteristics of female cows.
By enhancing the overall genetic potential of the herd, it contributes to the profitability improvement of the farm.
- The genetic potential of female cattle
This allows for the selection of which calves to keep in the barn and which females to produce as successor cows.
- Understanding the genetic trends within the cattle herd
Visualizing the genetic weaknesses within the cattle herd and identifying priority areas for improvement.
- Progress of improvements
By conducting ongoing inspections, you can track the progress of genetic improvements in the entire cattle herd through visual representations such as graphs.
What can be done through mating consultation services and how to utilize them effectively
What is 'mating consultation services'?
Utilizing programs provided by North American suppliers, we guide the selection of optimal breeding bulls for the female herd based on pedigree information and genome test results.
Additionally, we can rank the female cows and propose appropriate breeding plans.
- Managing inbreeding coefficients
We recommend appropriate breeding to avoid the increasing complexity of inbreeding coefficients each year, reducing the management effort during insemination.
- Preventing the occurrence of genetic defects
We avoid mating carrier cows that are known to cause calf lethality disorders or embryo loss due to defective genes or haplotypes.
- Improving body conformation and accelerating genetic improvement
Depending on the system's capabilities, we recommend mating strategies that efficiently perform either body conformation adjustments or genetic improvements tailored to the specific preferences of each farm.
What can be done with bull selection tools and how to use them effectively
What is 'bull selection tools'?
We will adeptly select and recommend the ideal breeding bulls from the diverse NOSAWA's lineup, tailored to the specific needs of each farm.
In addition to setting preferences for priority improvement factors, we cater to a wide range of demands, including bulls suitable for robotic milking, A2A2 gene carriers, and hornless bulls.
- Selecting from WWS and SEMEX breeding bulls
We conduct a needs assessment to the preferences of each farm and recommend breeding bulls that align with their improvement goals.
- Creating custom improvement indices for each individual farm
We can create customized indices tailored to the specific needs of our customers, in addition to the existing comprehensive indices, allowing for a more precise selection of breeding bulls.
- The cost and inventory management of frozen semen
We will generate a report that visualizes the cost-effectiveness by considering the appropriate quantity and cost of semen to purchase.
