Dairy Evaluation Review Team (DERT)
DERT is to provide independent, objective, impartial reviews of the CDCB dairy genetic
evaluation results about a week before their official release and provide feedback to the
CDCB staff in order to reduce the likelihood that inaccurate predictions will be released
to the industry. This review is done with a confidential agreement arrangement.
Participants: Mark Chamberlain, Sam Comstock, Tom Lawlor, Ryan Starkenburg, Bob Welper and Cari Wolfe
