Calculation of Angus HeiferSELECT

Calculation of Angus HeiferSELECTBanner

Angus HeiferSELECT has been developed in Australia, by Australians, for use in Australian Angus cattle.

Angus HeiferSELECT genetic predictions are calculated based on analysis of Angus Australia’s extensive genomic and phenotypic database. Collated over many years, this database combines the DNA profiles of Australian Angus animals with comprehensive performance measurements collected in Australian beef production systems.

Modern scientific knowledge enables the association between the DNA profiles and performance measurements to be analysed, and genetic predictions to be calculated from the DNA profiles of the heifers tested with Angus HeiferSELECT.

Through utilisation of Angus Australia’s genomic and phenotypic database, Angus HeiferSELECT provides the most accurate genetic predictions possible for the selection of Australian Angus females.
