Publication of Friesian genomic evaluations

August 2016

Genomic evaluations have been introduced for the Friesian breed with the August 2016 proof run. Initially a group of young bulls have had their genomic evaluations published. These can be found in the 'Top Available Bulls' list under the Friesian Top Animals Menu in the Animal Data section of the Holstein UK website. 

This list can be set to show either type or production traits in detail, using the 'Select Proof Type' option highlighted in red in the picture below. Currently not all of the young genomic Friesian bulls will appear when the list is defaulted to the Type option, with bulls with under 50% reliability (for Type Merit) being excluded. All the bulls do however appear under the production option.

Please note that the 'Young Available Bulls' listing in the menu only shows bulls with Pedigree Index data and not bulls with Genomic data.

Bulls which are identified as having a genomic evaluation on their factsheet with the Young Genomic Pedigree Index  indicator, as with the bull in the picture below.

The table below shows the Top 20 young Friesian bulls with a genomic evaluation, which were notified to CDI as being AI Available on the 9/8/2016, ranked by Friesian PLI.
