16 – Scrotal Size

scrotal_size
Scrotal Size EBVs are estimates of genetic differences between animals in scrotal circumference at 400 days of age.

Scrotal Size EBVs are calculated from scrotal circumference measurements of bulls that are between 300 and 700 days of age, and/or genomic information, and are expressed in centimetre units.

Higher Scrotal Size EBVs indicate the animal is expected to produce sons with larger scrotal circumference as yearlings and daughters that reach puberty earlier.
