Finding Confidence in Wellness Traits Heritability and Reliability

The Wellness traits that were introduced by Zoetis in April have added a new element to the way that progressive dairy farmers select genetics in their herd. Mastitis, lameness, metritis, displaced abomasum, ketosis and retained placenta are the six new Wellness traits that have burst onto the scene with approximately 50% reliability on genomic tested animals. Now the questions arise: are these traits heritable enough and is the reliability high enough to commit to selecting sires by using these traits?

A Family Tradition

I had the opportunity to visit Wert Angus Ranch near Aurora, Neb., in early March.  The family operation consists of 240 Angus cattle and 2,500 acres of white corn. After driving by their lot of Angus cow-calf pairs, I found Robert and Tamera Wert along with their 17-year-old son, Bryce, and 13-year-old daughter, Riley and Accelerated Genetics ISR Dennis Comer and his assistant Chyanne Barnhill enjoying morning conversation and coffee cake in their shop.  After accepting a piece of the coffee cake from Tamara and listening to the conversations of the cattle and farm combined with the occasional joke and laughter, I followed the crew to the breeding barn.
