Updated EBVs Now Available: December 2018

November 23, 2018 12:58 pm

Angus Australia wishes to advise that the December 2018 Angus TACE analysis has been completed and updated EBVs are now available.

With relation to this analysis, please note:

  • any performance data from the Angus Sire Benchmarking Program that was previously excluded from the mid-November 2018 analysis as ‘outlier’ records has now been included.  The inclusion of this information may have resulted in some changes to EBVs, particularly to Carcase EBVs for Cohort 6 sires, and their relatives.
  • while the annual inclusion of updates and enhancements to the analytical software used with Angus TACE was scheduled for the December analysis, the Animal Genetics & Breeding Unit have advised that this has been delayed until the mid-December analysis. The inclusion of these enhancements is expected to result in some changes to EBVs. Results from the mid-December analysis are expected to be available by December 10th.

Now that the December 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 TACE Herd Report
