April 2018 Holstein Proof : A foretaste of upcoming Genes Diffusion catalogue

The April proof is, as usual, very expected release because it is the first one of the year, but mostly because it is the one that will determine the new campaign.

This indexing is the one that incorporates the basic change that is particularly important this year, with an average loss of 6 points of ISU over the entire male and female population, corresponding to the genetic progress of the breed.
