Breeding worth traits change to reflect increase in value of fat
In September, NZAEL finalised the weighting factors that will be used to calculate breeding worth in 2019. Because of a sizable shift in the value of fat, Breeding Worth 2019 is being published early for all AE-enrolled sires, to give farmers advance insights into which bulls can add the most value to their breeding programme, in a market where fat is a high value component.
Build your perfect bull team - it's easy!
- Simply use the RAS list or search below to add bulls. This page will update with your new selections. (Note: If you have already built your team, you will need to remove the bulls and re-add them to see BW19).
- To refine and customise your team use the arrows to sort on traits that are particularly important to you and remove the bulls who don’t meet your criteria.
- Once you've finished refining you'll be left with a team of bulls that specifically meet your individual needs.
Note: If you've added bulls you can return to this page at any time by clicking the bull icon in the top right of the screen. For more infomation about this tool see our quick guide.
