Under a Non-funded Cooperative Agreement (NFCA) between CDCB and the United States Department of Agriculture – Agricultural Research Service – Animal Genomics and Improvement Laboratory, CDCB has full responsibility for the service portion of U.S.A. genetic and genomic evaluations, including the computing and distributing of data and maintaining the national allied partners cooperator database.
