17 – Carcase Weight


Carcase Weight EBVs are estimates of genetic differences between animals in hot standard carcase weight at 750 days of age.

Carcase Weight EBVs are calculated from the hot standard carcase weight of animals between 300 and 1000 days of age, and/or genomic information, and are expressed in kilogram units.

Higher Carcase Weight EBVs indicate the animal is expected to produce progeny with heavier carcase weights.
