TGRM™ for Beef Breeding Programmes
TGRM™ can assist in making decisions about whom to select and how to mate them. An important part of this is to manage coancestry, which is highly related to how quickly inbreeding accumulates - we use the Theory of Optimal Contributions to do this. You can also minimise inbreeding in the progeny of matings, as well as manipulate how progeny could be distributed on their predicted mid-parent EBVs.
This short presentation gives an example of how TGRM™ can be used by beef breeders:
