DataGene is an independent and industry-owned organisation that is responsible for driving genetic gain and herd improvement in the Australian dairy industry, through research, development and extension activities.
Formed in July 2016, DataGene brings together many precompetitive herd improvement functions under the one umbrella, including genetics, herd testing and herd recording software, data systems and herd test standards. The first two functions to be incorporated into DataGene are:
• DataGene Centre, the software which runs most herd test centres (formerly Mistro Centre); from July 2016.
• Genetic evaluation and other roles performed by the Australian Dairy Herd Improvement Scheme (ADHIS); from late 2016.
