No access to third parties is allowed unless authorized by the provider. Examples: pedigrees, test day and lactation records, reproductive records, calving traits records, type appraisals, genotypes and herd information.
    2. CDCB PRODUCTS
      CDCB’s output data (Appendix I presents a list of products generated by the CDCB). Includes results generated by the CDCB in the processes of describing the cooperator database contents and carrying out genetic evaluations and genomic analyses. Appendix I presents the CDCB products in detail. Most results from genetic and genomic evaluations are made publicly available at CDCB’s webpage or shared with service users and the terms for their use are defined by CDCB’s End User Agreement (https://queries.uscdcb.com/Main/terms.htm).
      • Restricted access rule: estimated SNP effects are not made available for external users.
