Understanding Angus HeiferSELECT Results

Angus HeiferSELECT provides genetic predictions for thirteen (13) important maternal, growth, feed intake, carcase and resilience traits, along with genetic prediction for cow-calf value, feedlot-carcase value and total breeding value (with star rating).



Angus HeiferSELECT genetic predictions are reporng using an intuitive 0 – 100 scoring system, with a score of 50 representing the average genetic merit of commercial Angus heifers tested with the Angus HeiferSELECT product.

Higher values identify females carrying genetics that will produce “more” of a trait, which may or may not be preferred, subject to your breeding objective.

For example, a female with a Yearling Weight genetic prediction of 80 would be expected to produce progeny that are heavier at 13-14 months of age than a female with a Yearling Weight genetic prediction of 30, all other things being equal.
