Estimated Breeding Values can only be directly compared to other EBVs calculated in the same analysis. Results from different analyses are likely based upon different datasets and different underlying parameters and trait definitions.
Information contained on this web database, including but not limited to pedigree, DNA information, Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) and Index values, is based on data recorded on the society/association database which was supplied by members and/or third parties. Whilst every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information, the ABRI, the society/association, their officers and employees assume no responsibility for its content, use or interpretation. Data submitted to the database may have errors in it which can not be detected by current testing technology. For this reason, users ought to consider if they need to obtain independent testing of the relevant animal (if possible) to ensure the data is accurate.
BREEDPLAN results are calculated using software developed by the Animal Genetics and Breeding Unit, a joint venture of NSW Department of Primary Industries and the University of New England, which receives funding for this purpose from Meat and Livestock Australia Limited.
