Breed Development

Texel EBVs can help sheep producers ensure they purchase the optimum genetics for their flock.

 

With an investment in a performance recorded ram with a high Estimated Breeding Value (EBV) shown to be worth an additional £800-£1000 over his working lifetime, extra genetic information can be valuable, according to EBLEX breeding specialist Sam Boon.

Information about breeding potential (EBVs/Indexes) is now often displayed at sales, but are also readily available in the Texel flock book, www.basco.org.

The following webinar has been created to assist breeders and producers to learn more on how to interpret TEXEL EBVs and use them when making their flock breeding decisions.
