Holstein Index June 2012: very good year for Genes Diffusion

The output index for the month of June is generally the most important one of the year in terms of new features. It must be noted that the 2012 result is an exceptional output for the Holstein selection program of Genes Diffusion, both for new genomic bulls and for progeny tested. No fewer than 10 Genes Diffusion bulls are in the top 20 French ISU, including the places 1, 2 and 4.
