EBVs, Linear Assessment and Type Classification

Recording and monitoring production traits within breeds is an important part of the role of pedigree breed societies. Grassroots has links in place to share pedigree information with Signet and Abri and import Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) from Signet which can then be incorporated into sale catalogues.

For those breeds involved in Type Classification there are tools to export the lists needed for the assessors.  The data is stored against each animal and mechanisms are under development to import these results automatically.  

There are also tools within the system to record linear assessment based on individual breed requirements.
