The past decade – the genomic revolution – has forever changed dairy cow performance and herd management. As we focus- forward to how U.S. dairy will transform and adapt in an ever-changing environment, there are important questions to ask and answer. What is the next frontier for genomics and dairy data utilization? How will U.S. cattle breeding advance to a new level of global leadership? Many collaborative and inquisitive minds are imperative.
