Charolais Cattle Breeders Society Breeding Values

CHAROLAIS BREEDING VALUES

BLUP Breeding values are an indispensable tool both for the stud breeder and commercial beef producer alike. Whilst visual appraisal of animals remains an integral part of selection to ensure functional efficiency and adaptability, BLUP breeding values eliminate a lot of the guesswork from measuring an animal’s genetic potential.

Within the breeding values files attached below, you will find the definitions of important BLUP values currently measured and reported for Charolais animals in South Africa as well as the latest trait leaders for the important and economically relevant EBV traits. Charolais breeders and commercial farmers alike are urged to use BLUP values as an important tool to promote breeding objectives and monitor progress.
