Analysis Upgrades Webinar
Sheep Genetics aim to continually supply the best genetic evaluation possible to you and the Australian Sheep Industry. To maintain this quality an annual upgrade to the OVIS software that runs the analysis is made. These changes will be made on the 7th of May for MERINOSELECT and the 14th of May for LAMBPLAN. It is important to understand the enhancements made to the analysis and why you may see changes to the ASBVs of your animals at this time.
This year we are seeing a range of improvements to the analysis, including the addition of pregnancy scans, addition of new visual wool traits and the long awaited single step analysis for carcase traits. To discuss these in more detail Sheep Genetics will be holding a webinar on the analysis upgrades on Friday the 6th of May at 3.00pm AEST. It is highly recommended that you attend or watch the webinar on Sheep Genetics YouTube channel before the analysis is upgraded.
