Do anyone know if
heterosis (hybrid vigor)
is working in the game for cross breeding?

Always wondered about that too. From my experiences with making show steers I would say no it does not exist. Seems like no matter what you breed together 75%+ of offspring will be below parent average for any given trait.

I don't see any hybrid vigor.

It seems, rather than hybrid vigor, the function of affecting inbreeding negatively was added. Prior to that addition, the best herds were highly inbred.

Heterosis along with full or close to full epd traits that could be bred for would be awesome.
