Evaluations are based on a combination of the traditional data recorded on each animal, combined with its ancestry information and its genomic information. Genomic results further improve the accuracy of the genetic indexes, and make the information on young animals in particular much more informative.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of information in this document, no responsibility can be accepted thereto.
