AMSS EXPRESS Program Update:
The American Milking Shorthorn Society’s Board of Directors met in Beloit (December 2-3, 2022) to review a variety of topics. The AMSS EXPRESS Program was one important topic that was discussed. After much discussion, the board voted to discontinue the program after 12/31/2022. Increasing costs, combined with declining enrollments, ultimately led the board to determine EXPRESS is not cost effective for AMSS to administer.
There will be no program to replace EXPRESS in 2023, but all herds with a DHIA herdcode recorded in the national office will be eligible for production awards presented in 2024.
