Nope, we used MMI.  We thought it was a better test than either Ingenity or Genestar.  MMI uses 128 markers for marbling.

Thanks Dori!  I can't remember the exact numbers for the tenderness test, so I would need to check with Cindy.  But, the tenderness test was OK, just nothing to get overly excited about, although I think it was really similar to the Lizbon bull's tenderness numbers... maybe it's better than I am thinking or maybe Lizbon's owner is just a good marketeer.   ;)   Doc's marbling was real good... top 1% out of 19,000 head at the time of the test & according to MMI, it translates into high choice/prime.     
 
This is a bit of a stretch, but Doc's sire is a 1/2 brother to Kintyre Sammy & Doc's dam is also a 1/2 sister to Kintyre Sammy.   Kintyre Sammy is 7 out of 8 stars for tenderness on the genestar test... don't know that Doc would test quite that well, but he obviously has some good animals in his pedigree for the genestar test.
