GeneMax Advantage delivers three economic index scores that allow for easier, more dependable decision-making:
Total Advantage – Select the most advantageous overall heifers with one simple number. This index predicts differences in potential profitability from genetic merit across all economically relevant traits captured in the Cow Advantage and Feeder Advantage index scores.
Cow Advantage – This index ranks females for differences in combined genetic merit across the following maternal traits: Calving Ease Maternal (CEM), Weaning Weight (WW), Heifer Pregnancy (HP), Milk and Mature Weight (MW).
Feeder Advantage – This index ranks females for differences in combined post-weaning feedlot performance and carcass traits, including: Dry Matter Intake (DMI), Carcass Weight (CW), Marbling and Yield Grade traits, as valued on CAB type grids.

Docility: Potential troublemakers due to unacceptable temperament
Tenderness: Least desirable for tenderness as determined by genomic predictions for Warner-Bratzler shear force
