National Breeding System Interim Report

The Interim Report summarises the research findings and recommendations. As indicated with the recent August ABV release, the Task Force is recommending that

  1. The current APR is replaced by a new balanced performance index which is outlined in the report. This index aligns directly to farmer preferences expressed during Australia's Longest Farmwalk and the NBO survey.
  1. Two additional indexes are released to align to specific breeding philosophies. These indexes are a type weighted index and a health weighted index.
