Interbull 2021 Title Submission Deadline Approaching Fast

Dear Colleagues,


If you wish to share your latest findings at the 2021 virtual Interbul Open Meeting, please do submit your title and abstract no later than March 1st at 23:59 CET via


Participation to the virtual 2021 ICAR-INTERBULL meeting does require a separate registration, visit to make yours. Early birds registration deadline is set for February 28th !


This year's Interbull Open Meeting will focus on the following subjects pertaining to both dairy and beef:

  • Sensor data applied to genetic and genomic evaluation

This topic provides the opportunity to share both practical experience and plans for implementing data from sensor devices into evaluation models.

  • Big data and machine learning for the benefit of genetic and genomic evaluation.

An opportunity to share experiences in the use of big data (farm data, automatic recording, genomic data) and machine learning methods on small and large scales to benefit genetic and genomic evaluation

  • Meta-analytical methods in animal genetic and genomic evaluation.

Abstracts are invited to share the potential usage of meta-analysis in animal genetic evaluations.

  • Experience with single-step evaluation.

In dairy cattle, some countries have implemented single step evaluations as the official method for their national evaluation, while others are in the implementation phase. We invite participants to share successes, challenges in the implementation and use of single step evaluations.

  • Implementing new traits in genetic and genomic evaluation systems.

Current development within national evaluations related to inclusion of new traits. Challenges and benefits related to implementation, implementation scale and expectations for international evaluations.

  • Cross-breed genetic and genomic evaluations.

This topic relates to challenges and solutions for evaluation of cross-bred animals (dairy x dairy and beef x dairy) and opens the discussion on the importance of particular traits in various regions as well as future breed composition, and possibilities for both national and international evaluations.


We look forward to "see" you there!
