Foot Angle

Foot Angle EBVs (Angle) are estimates of genetic differences in foot angle.

Foot Angle EBVs are calculated from a subjective assessment of foot angle (strength of pastern, depth of heel), and are expressed in score units.

Lower Foot Angle EBVs indicate an animal is expected to produce progeny with more desirable foot angle, being a 45-degree angle at the pastern joint with appropriate toe length and heel depth.
