A JOLLY donor!

JOLLY, daughter of VORTEX was born on 08/07/2014 at GAEC L'ESPRIT DES MONTAGNES in MANIGOD (74). Spotted in 2018 thanks to genotyping, Yves DUNAND (the Abondance technician at the time) qualified her as a mother to bull (MAT). She will remain so for 4 years, leaving behind her the REGGAE bull (son of NOSTRESS) born in October 2020 and released in 2022 as a young sire in the AURIVA catalog.

TE is a technical affair, but above all a team affair!

As in many aspects of genetic selection, the arrival of genomics in Abondance a few years ago has enabled biotechnologies, and in particular embryo transfer (ET), to take a step forward. Whether as part of a scheme to offer you the best breeding stock or for private use, TE is a powerful tool for genetic progress. In this brochure, we give the floor to Franck Mariller, one of the key players in the field of TE in Abondance. A seasoned embryo transplant technician, he shares his experience with us.

Single Step: towards a better representation of genetic progress

The first Single Step indexation for dairy breeds provides an opportunity to take stock of this new development. Developed by French and international geneticists, it enables indexes to be calculated in a single step, harmonized internationally, corrected for genetic progress, and better integration of all genotyping data.
