Two guides through the EBVmaze

UNRAVEL the mysteries of Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) using two new guides for beef and sheep producers, from Signet.

Aimed at commercial, as well as pedigree breeders, the pocket guides outline how pedigree performance records are used to calculate EBVs. They also explain how individual EBV scores for growth, carcass and maternal traits should be interpreted by producers.

Composite indexes such as Beef Value for bulls and Lean Scheme for rams are also covered by the guides. They are available free from Signet (01908-670339, fax 01908-670339).
