Genetic Progress

Genetic Progress Reports are produced for herd-recorded herds in April, August and December, after each public ABV release.

The 2-page report allows you to track the effect of your breeding decisions and to monitor trends in your herd’s genetic merit. It includes a graph showing the herd’s genetic trends for profit (Balanced Performance Index) over 10 years, compared with the Australian breed average and top 10% in the country. Additional graphs track the herd’s genetic changes for type, longevity, mastitis resistance, fertility, protein and fat.

Use the Genetic Progress Report to identify breeding areas that have performed well and traits for improvement.
