28 – Rear Leg Hind View

Rear Leg Hind View (RH) EBVs are estimates of genetic differences between animals in rear leg structure when viewed from behind.

Rear Leg Hind View EBVs are calculated from a subjective assessment of rear leg structure when viewed from behind by an accredited assessor when animals are less than 750 days of age and are expressed in percentage units.

Higher Rear Leg Hind View EBVs indicate an animal is expected to produce a higher percentage of progeny with desirable rear leg structure.

Low Rear Leg Hind View EBVs are published with an additional flag of either “BL”, indicating increased probability of bow legged progeny, or “CH”, indicating increased probability of cow hocked progeny.
