NEW EPD AVAILABLE ONLINE
Members who are users of the online system, now have access to Docility, Post Weaning Gain and Yield Grade EPD on their cattle.
Docility is calculated using breeder submitted docility scores and a higher EPD value indicates animals that are more likely to have offspring that score 1 or 2 (quiet) on the docility scoring scale.
Post Weaning Gain EPD predicts the daily rate of growth of offspring post-weaning. A larger value indicates a higher average daily gain.
Yield Grade EPD indicates the likelihood of offspring receiving a yield grade score of 1 or 2. Yield grade 1 and 2 are higher yielding carcasses. A lower EPD indicates cattle that are likely to have more yield or a lower yield grade score (more 1 and 2).
