This year's Interbull Open Meetings will include scientific reports related to the following themes in both beef and dairy cattle:

 

1. Availability and use of genetic and genomic information in dairy and beef herd management

 

The use of genomic information in genetic evaluation has brought about revolutionary change in cattle selection. Genetic and genomic informationis also changing how dairy and beef producers make everyday management, selection and breeding decisions. Papers are invited to highlight the opportunities and needs for genetic and genomic information in cattle farms.

 

2. Addressing the challenges of genomic selection in international genetic and genomic evaluations in dairy and beef cattle.

During the 2017 Interbull Meetings in Ljubljana and Tallinn, “Possible sources of bias introduced through genomic pre-selection”, and the “Impact of genomic pre-selection on N-GES and I-GES (MACE)” were addressed. During the current session we like to move from the ‘technical’ issue to the “application of solutions”, and provide the opportunity to share your experiences, activities and plans for addressing these challenges in your national evaluation systems.

3. Research and development in national and international evaluations - novel methods and new traits in dairy and beef cattle

For this session papers are invited that will provide an update on ongoing R&D in national and international evaluations in dairy and/or beef cattle for:

1 - novel methods and/or

2 - novel traits.
