Angus Australia wishes to advise that the June 2018 Angus BREEDPLAN analysis has been completed and updated EBVs are now available.
With relation to the recent analysis, please note the following important information:
A revised set of EPDs have been included in the June 2018 Angus BREEDPLAN analysis for imported American and Canadian Black and Red Angus animals. The inclusion of the revised EPDs resulted in some changes to the EBVs of imported animals, and their relatives.
A significant amount of new performance data from the Angus Sire Benchmarking Project (ASBP) has been included for the first time. Specifically, the new data includes structural score information recorded on cohort 6 heifers and steers, and net feed intake performance recorded on cohort 6 steers. The inclusion of this performance data resulted in some changes to the EBVs of cohort 6 sires, and their relatives.
Now that the June analysis has been completed, the following reports are available to download from the “Files to Download” section of the Member Login area on the Angus Australia website. If you do not have access to the Member Login area or have forgotten your password please contact Angus Australia.
* Reports only generated for herds that have new post-birth data included since the last analysis.
