How Risk Adverse Are You?

I just came across a great post by Allie Janson Hazell about risk tolerance and genetic testing on The Genoscape blog.

In several posts (such as this and most recently this) I've argued that livestock producers should use genomic-enhanced EPDs to reduce their risks. Rather than the risk of finding out about health issues, which is discussed on The Genoscape, in livestock production we are interested in financial risk. So how risk adverse are you?

To find out, head over to the Rutgers Cooperative Extension website and take their Investment Risk Tolerance Quiz.

In future posts I plan to discuss reasons other than risk management why genomic-enhanced EPDs are valuable.
