Angus Australia


Understanding Research Selection Indexes

As part of the review and updating of the selection indexes that are published within the TransTasman Angus Cattle Evaluation (TACE), Angus Australia, in association with the Animal Genetics & Breeding Unit (AGBU) and Agricultural Business Research Institute (ABRI), have developed a series of research selection indexes.

The research selection indexes have been developed for industry review and feedback prior to potential implementation into the TransTasman Angus Cattle Evaluation.

This module provides an overview of the research selection indexes, along with some background information regarding selection indexes and how they are calculated.
