Data

Genetic Improvement

You can't manage what you don't measure

PWR has collaborated with industry leading service providers to evaluate and process the PWR DNA and data into meaningful EPD’s. These include CE, Growth, Longevity, Maternal, FE, ADG, REA, IMF, BF, HCW and Feeder/Terminal Indexes.

To ensure the highest level of accuracy, all calves from PWR enrolled herds will be at the minimum sire verified.

PWR is open to BOTH registered and commercial Wagyu and Wagyu influenced cattle. DNA profiles are required on all animals in order to verify calves and data back to the correct sire.
**This DNA verification is the backbone to genetic improvement AND a distinct and valuable marketing advantage in today’s highly competitive US beef industry.**

***PWR will assist customers in data collection/entry, compilation and interpretation.***
