Updated EBVs Now Available: Mid-November 2018

November 15, 2018 11:21 am

Angus Australia wishes to advise that the Mid-November 2018 Angus BREEDPLAN analysis has been completed and updated EBVs are now available.

With relation to the recent analysis, please note that a significant amount of new performance data from the Angus Sire Benchmarking Program (ASBP) has been included for the first time.

This new data in the BREEDPLAN analysis includes:

  • Carcase weight, eye muscle area, rib fat, rump fat and intramuscular fat from laboratory assay recorded on 666 Cohort 6 steers
  • Boned out, retail beef yield data on 236 Cohort 6 steers.

The inclusion of this data has resulted in changes to the EBVs and indexes of animals in the ASBP and their relatives. While of much lesser degree, further changes to EBVs are anticipated in the December 2018 Angus BREEDPLAN analysis following the inclusion or correction of any information that has been excluded from the Mid-November analysis as being “outlier” records.

Now that the Mid-November 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.

  • Individual BREEDPLAN Herd Report
  • Outlier Report (where applicable)
  • Completeness of Performance Report*
