Producer Case Studies
Selective Performance Recording
Significant problems can arise when only selections of animals in a contemporary group are performance recorded. For example, if only the performance for the best animals in the contemporary group is submitted to Angus Australia and the lower performing animals are left out.

In this situation, the performance information for an animal will only be compared with the “selection” that has been recorded. If this “selection” is not an accurate reflection of the entire contemporary group, then Angus BREEDPLAN cannot make adequate comparisons and the EBVs produced may be biased or misleading.
  • Adopt a whole herd recording strategy.
  • Record all calves with Angus Australia.
  • Always record performance for all calves in a contemporary group and submit this performance to Angus Australia.
Record performance on all available animals (i.e. heifers, bulls and steers, rather than just bulls).
