AHDB National Beef Evaluations
The AHDB National Beef Evaluations are a set of Estimated Breeding Values based on commercial data sources including BCMS and UK abattoir data. EBVs are now available for the following traits;
– Age at slaughter (days)
– Carcase weight (kg)
– Carcase fat class (EUROP)
– Carcase conformation (EUROP)
– Average daily carcase gain (kg/day)
To breed animals that best suit your farming system, these EBVs should be considered in conjunction with EBVs from the relevant performance recording organisation (ABRI Breedplan/Signet/Taurus) for your breed of interest.
