Interpretation of Bull Evaluations for Type Traits
Whereas most people only look at a sire’s Genetic Evaluation Summary when purchasing semen or making breeding choices;
Whereas it is difficult to establish a link between the genetics of a sire and the linear evaluation (which corresponds to classification);
Whereas what is shown in a sire proof is the breed average, which is not necessarily the ideal;
Whereas the ideal of classification is well known, but the ideal of genetic traits is little known or unknown;
Whereas the real impact of genetic traits on an animal’s classification or conformation is little known or unknown;
Whereas the interpretation of a sire’s genetic index and the impact on the conformation of its daughters is complex.
Therefore, it is proposed to make the proof interpretation easier by including a link between the genetic figure of a sire’s type traits and the classification result expected from his daughters (linear evaluation). To include the expected classification result compared to the proof average.
