Program for Genetic Advancement Canada


The Program for Genetic Advancement Canada™ (PGAC™) is Select Sires Genervations Inc.'s young sire program in Canada. Like the program in the United States, the PGAC samples young sires that have built-in qualities to be breed leaders as a result of being the products of the most highly regarded sires in A.I and out of the most elite cows in each breed. PGAC sires are randomly sampled, coast-to-coast, to ensure they are sampled on a cross section of management systems in various geographic locations. The majority of Select Sires's current proven lineup started their career as a PGA™ young sire.
