Angus Australia members wishing to assist with the research into Coat score RBVs are encouraged to collect coat scores on their animals. Coat scores are collected using a 1-7 score system, with a score of 1 indicating a sleek coat and a score of 7 indicating a very hairy coat.
Angus Australia provides a detailed collection guideline for coat type scoring for Angus animals, including the seasonal timing for collection and age specifications. Further details on the collection guidelines for coat score can be found in the Angus Education Centre.
For further information in regards to the Coat Type RBVs please contact Matthew Reynolds, Angus Australia Breed Development Officer, on firstname.lastname@example.org or (02) 6773 4626.
