Introducing Angus DataCheck

August 11, 2020 4:45 pm

Angus Australia is pleased to announce the availability of Angus DataCHECK.

Angus DataCHECK is a new service that enables Angus Australia members to review the completeness of the pedigree, performance and genomic information that is included in the TransTasman Angus Cattle Evaluation (TACE) for animals within their seedstock enterprise.

Angus DataCHECK will initially be made available to each member participating in TACE as a pdf report, with reports being updated after each bi-monthly analysis and made available for download from Angus ONLINE. In time, it is envisaged that Angus DataCHECK will be delivered via a more modern, interactive online portal.

The new Angus DataCHECK reports replace the “Completeness of Performance” reports previously supplied, with statistics summarising the pedigree, weight, carcase, birth, fertility, docility and structural soundness information that has been recorded. Of particular note is the inclusion of new information summarising the genomic testing that has been conducted for animals, along with reports summarising the performance measurements that have been collected for newer traits such as mature cow body condition and height.

Angus DataCHECK complements the results routinely published from the TransTasman Angus Cattle Evaluation, with the following reports now being made available to each member after each bi-monthly analysis:

  • Herd EBV Report
  • Genetic Benchmarking Report
  • Exclusions Report
  • Angus DataCHECK Report
  • EBV_EXTENDED csv file

Click here to log in to Angus ONLINE and access the latest TACE results for your herd, including your new Angus DataCHECK report.
