GeneMax Focus helps you zero in on the best genetic potential

GeneMax Focus

A trusted product.

GeneMax® Focus was created through a collaboration between Angus Genetics Inc. (AGI), Certified Angus Beef® and Zoetis. It is intended for use in commercial Black Angus females (75% or greater).

  • GeneMax Focus was created to help select and breed cattle with genetics that can consistently qualify for carcass premiums and value-added feeder cattle marketing programs.
  • GeneMax Focus helps identify replacement heifers with superior genetic merit for growth and marbling, leading to continuous improvement in feedlot performance, quality grade and associated economic returns.
  • GeneMax Focus is a simple, affordable genomic test for commercial Angus replacement females (75% or greater) designed to enhanced the production efficiency of Certified Angus Beef.

On the ranch, GeneMax Focus can assist with:

  • GeneMax Focus delivers genetic predictions for four traits: Weaning weight (WW), Post-weaning feedlot gain (Gain), Carcass weight (CW) and USDA marbling score (Marb)
  • GeneMax Focus’ economic selection index, called GMX Score, ranks animals for net returns due to combined genetic merit for growth, carcass weight and quality grade (marbling).
  • GeneMax Focus results include Sire Match to HD 50K and i50K tested Angus AI and natural service bull batteries.

In the feedlot, GeneMax Focus helps:

  • Manage risk by incorporating gain and grade predictions into more dependable breakeven projections
  • Earn premiums through grid marketing of fed cattle with more predictable quality grade performance
  • GeneMax Focus Field Study
