  • Selecting multiple cohorts from the drop-down box
    • Select the first cohort you want to include in your search from the drop down box.  Click the ‘+’ sign which will appear beside the box to add a new drop down box below the first. Use the second drop down box to select the second cohort to include in your search. Repeat this process until all cohorts have been selected. Importantly the ‘+’ sign will only appear after the first cohort is selected.

The criteria you can enter are displayed under 5 tabs; Animal details, Breeding, Genetic Tests, EBVs and Progeny Performance. Click on the relevant tab to bring up the additional selection criteria to select from (as an example to search for a HBR registered bull, in the top 20% of the breed for ABI who’s progeny ranked in the top 5 for both carcase IMF and MSA ossification).

7.  On the ‘Animal details‘ tab for register select ‘HBR‘ by clicking the square in front of the word HBR.
