Angus Australia


Activity 2

An example bull, with a selection of his EBVs is shown in the image below:

Look carefully at his EBVs and then at the example percentile table shown below. For each EBV, drag the bull’s EBV onto the percentile table to position his EBV relative to other two year old animals analysed in the TransTasman Angus Cattle Evaluation. Once you have determined where this bull sits compared to the Angus breed, answer the following multiple choice questions.


Now that you have identified the percentiles bands in which this bull sits, answer some questions.
