Lactanet releases genetic evaluations weekly, which results in approximately forty-five (45) genetic releases throughout the year. Releases do not take place two (2) weeks prior to official genetic evaluations (April, August, December). Aside from those weeks, Lactanet releases results every Tuesday at 12 noon (Eastern) and Holstein Canada’s member’s WebAccounts should have updated reports shortly after the release.
Genomic samples can still take approximately 6 weeks from the time they are summited to the time producers receive results, as such it’s important to allow yourself at least four (4) to six (6) weeks if results are needed by a specific date.
If you have any further questions regarding genotyping, call our Holstein Canada Customer Service department at 1-855-756-8300 ext. 481 for EN or 491 for FR.
