Claw Set

Claw SetBanner

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, spacing and evenness of claws), and are expressed in score units.

Lower Claw Set EBVs indicate an animal is expected to produce progeny with, on average, a lower score for claw set (i.e. more even claws with less curl).

Claw set structure reflects the shape on the inside edge of each claw, and the space between the claws
