Foot Angle

Foot AngleBanner

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, on average, a lower score for foot angle (i.e. straighter pastern joint with more heel depth).

Foot angle structure reflects the angle of the pastern joint, indicated by the depth of heel & angle of the front of the claws
