November 30, 2017 11:07 am

Angus Australia wishes to advise that the December 2017 Angus TACE analysis has been completed and updated EBVs are now available.

With relation to the recent analysis, please note that a number of enhancements have been implemented including:

  • Changes to the calculation of EBVs for North American animals
  • Implementation of single step analytical software
  • Changes to the genomic information included in Angus TACE

The enhancements herald a new era for the genetic evaluation of Angus cattle in Australia, and will result in the calculation of EBVs that provide the best possible prediction of genetic merit for Australian Angus animals.

Now that the December 2017 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.
