Claw Set

Claw Set EBVs (Claw) are estimates of genetic differences in claw set structure.

Claw Set EBVs are calculated from a subjective assessment of claw set on both the front and back feet (shape and evenness of claws), and are expressed in score units.

Lower Claw Set EBVs indicate an animal is expected to produce progeny with more desirable claw structure, being toes that are symmetrical, even and appropriately spaced.
