Coat Type

Coat TypeBanner

Coat Type (CT) RBVs provide estimates of genetic differences between animals in coat type.

Coat Type RBVs are calculated from a subjective assessment of an animal’s hair length, fibre diameter and handle, and are expressed in score units.

Lower Coat Type RBVs indicate an animal is expected to produce progeny with a shorter, slicker coat.
