Sheep Genetics continually strives to provide a world leading genetic evaluation for our clients. Annually we implement enhancements to our analyses to ensure that you are provided with the most accurate breeding values and tools. This year there are a number of key enhancements being implemented to the analysis. The key themes for this year’s enhancements include:
- More accurate decisions through improved analysis and calculation of breeding values
- Ensuring the long-term efficiencies of our evaluations.
This years enhancements were made available on the Friday 13th May 2022. This enhancements are reflected in the results from the 1st May LAMBPLAN/KIDPLAN analysis and the 7th May MERINOSELECT/DOHNE analysis.
