Lessons from the ASBP: EBVs Reliably Predict Progeny

The Angus Sire Benchmarking Program (ASBP) has demonstrated that there is great potential to achieve genetic improvement in Angus breeding programs by utilising selections tools, such as EBVs and Selection Indexes.

How well EBVs describe the performance of progeny was part of a recent project examining bulls and their progeny involved in the Angus Sire Benchmarking Program Cohorts 5,6 and 7.

Check out the Lessons from the ASBP resources, available on the Angus Australia website for the other birth and fertility traits and the results from the earlier work examining Cohorts 1, 2 and 3.
