American Simmental Association

American Simmental Association established in the year 1968. This Association serves the needs of Simmental and Simbrah cattle breeders. Now, American Simmental Association offers a Simmental and SimAngus DNA profile. This includes the incorporation into the ASA’s genetic evaluation, will significantly enhance expected progeny differences. The new Simmental and SimAngus specific profile is the result of a multi-year collaborative effort. Recent development of product was fuelled by ASA members and staffs, carcass merit co-operators. ASA’s genomic database contains more than 3,000 animals, each with approximately 50,000 genetic data points.

American Simmental Association prefers genomic-enhanced EPDs because of the following factor:  

1. Increase confidence: This factor includes Improve reliability of EPDs in young animals and those with low accuracy EPDs, Reduce variation in EPDs as animals become more proven and Boost confidence when making mating decisions.

2. Time and Money Management: This Includes improvement of trait in very short period of time which leads to make better replacement and mating decisions earlier in animal’s productive life and also DNA information is similar to adding progeny records to an animal’s evaluation

3. Accuracy: Accuracy especially in young animals gets improved after adding the DNA information to existing data

4. Single DNA Sample provides many options at low cost. For example: Coat colour, horned-polled and genetic abnormalities

Advantages of Genomic Testing: It will have Low cost, can be done at any age and no parental validation fee, improved accuracy of EPDs for young and less proven animals.

About American Simmental Association

Simmental cattle originated from the Simme River which is slowly getting versatile. In order to protect these breeds and increased their productivity, different association in different regions are established. American Simmental Association is one of the biggest associations and similarly at national level or at international level, we have different society and associations that organises the meetings and Workshop in order to have some good discussion.  These meetings are wonderful global platform for knowledge exchange, sharing, networking and collaboration. With the similar intention and motive PULSUS through is all set to explore series of Medical Conferences in USA, Europe, and Asia-Pacific and Middle East regions throughout the world during 2017-18. These conferences will focus on different topics such as Cardiology, Dentistry, Dermatology, Diabetes and Endocrinology, Nutrition and Food safety. Society conference, meetings and events acts as an excellent bridge between the researchers across the globe.

USA Nutrition Societies: This is one of the oldest and largest independent associations of physicians-in-training in the United States.  This includes more than 400 Nutrition Societies and association which deal with the nutrition care. They work on both national as well as International level. Due to the increase in food spoilage, the USA Nutrition societies cover the wide field which includes obesity, Diabetes and Other health related issue.

European Nutrition Societies: In the Europe region, the different countries have different societies and associations related to medicine field. Mostly Societies and associations are located in UK, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Norway and Netherlands. European Nutrition Societies have almost 300 Association and Societies as compared to USA. Physicians, Physicians, Researchers and students who are members and in research works unite together from different societies like Nutrition society in a meeting to discuss the recent advancement in particular topic.

Asia- Pacific nutrition Societies: Asian Countries also have more than 200 nutrition society for the welfare of the Asian countries. Asia Pacific Nutrition Association which provides a unifying voice for the health care quality higher and deeper at any time. Asian countries have nutrition societies which again have subdivision which deals with the problems with the nutrition and finds the way for it.

Middle East nutrition Societies: Middle East countries have about 80 Nutrition associations. Middle East Countries comprises mostly located in Turkey, Iran, Israel, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates. Middle East Nutrition Societies focuses on educating students and nutritionist of the rich culture of people of Middle Eastern and South Asian descent. Nutrition Societies keep Complete up—to—date population and accuracy of the nutrition organizations and associations.

Nutrition association Conferences: There are almost 50 Nutrition Meetings and conferences which are scheduled by these societies for the year 2016 and 2017 in different parts of the globe. These international Nutrition Conferences and Nutrition Annual Meetings are planned to convey together all the current researches, new novelties and discoveries in a worldwide platform.
