The G-MAPSM or Genomic MAPSM program determines the best mating option for a cow or heifer based on Genomic PTAs (GPTAs) rather than phenotypic scores, performance or predicted information such as parent averages or pedigree indexes.

This is available to any Holstein producer who has genomic test results on their cows and/or heifers.

Mating recommendations can be provided for any individual, group or whole herd of genomic-tested animals. The mating recommendations are included on the MAPSM program report along with non-genomic tested animals mated through the traditional MAPSM program. On the report, animals mated through the G-MAPSM program are signified by a "G" or the word "Genomic" near their identification.

Furthermore, the G-MAPSM program has all of the convenience and features producers have come to expect from the traditional MAPSM program: inbreeding and lethal recessives are controlled; mating recommendations are available via email, the Web or on paper; mating recommendations can easily be imported into dairy management software; and producers can divide animals into various groups for specific breeding strategies and mate each group to different sires accordingly.
