14 – Milk

Milk EBVs are estimates of genetic differences between animals in live weight at 200 days of age due to the maternal contribution of its dam.

Milk EBVs are calculated from the live weights of calves at 200 days of age (i.e. at or around weaning), and/or genomic information, and are expressed in kilogram units.

Higher Milk EBVs indicate the animal is expected to produce daughters that have heavier calves at 200 days of age due to superior maternal attributes (e.g. more milk).
