ABBA Introduces Gestation Length EBV

New BREEDPLAN EBV Released for Brahman

Mar 2020

Good news for Brahman BREEDPLAN members with the introduction of a Gestation Length EBV into the Australian Brahman BREEDPLAN analysis in the November 2019 BREEDPLAN run. Gestation Length EBVs provide an estimate of genetic differences between the period from the date of conception (i.e. when the cow gets in calf) to when the subsequent calf is born. Gestation Length EBVs are calculated from both the joining date and date of birth records for calves conceived by either AI or Hand Mating. Gestation length information should be submitted to the Australian Brahman Breeders’ Association when submitting your calf registration details.
