Progeny Performance reports contain a range of information to assist Angus breeders in determining the progeny performance of sires within the ASBP Sires. This includes a range of familiar information (TACE EBVs and selection Indexes) and additional information (progeny average values and rankings within the ASBP).

The latest EBVs and Selection Indexes for all 264 ASBP sires to date can be accessed from the catalogues section of the Angus Australia website – click here
