Vit genetic evaluation successful re-certified by ICAR

The genetic evaluation systems of vit were successfully re-certified by ICAR for the next 5 years. Once again, the high standard of genetic evaluations carried out by vit in internal comparison were confirmed by a neutral body. The vit genetic evaluation systems are certified by ISO9001-2015, too.

ICAR (International Committee for Animal Recording) certifies genetic evaluations by international standards. The genetic evaluations of vit are certified by ICAR since many years. Now the routine re-certification after 5 years was done. The successful certification covered all genetic evaluations:

  • for dairy breeds
  • for beef breeds
  • for other species

The new ICAR certificate is valid for another 5 years until January 2027, and holds in a mid-term Consultative Review in summer 2024.
