UNDERSTANDING THE BREEDPLAN PERFORMANCE RECORDING INFORMATION IN THIS CATALOGUE Only British Simmental GROUP BREEDPLAN EBVs or INTERIM EBVs with Accuracy (Acc) can be validly compared between herds.

ESTIMATED BREEDING VALUES (EBVS) The EBV is the best estimate of an animal's genetic merit for that trait and they are to be used as a tool to assist in the selection of sires, the visual appearance remains very important.

ACCURACY An accuracy value is presented with every EBV and gives an indication of the amount of information that has been used in the calculation of that EBV. The higher the accuracy the lower the likelihood of change in the animal's EBV as more information is analysed for that animal or it's relatives.

CALVING EASE Calving Ease EBVs are based on calving difficulty scores, birth weights and gestation length information. More positive EBVs are favourable and indicate easier calving. DIR: Direct calving ease indicates how this animal influences the birth of its progeny.

ĂůǀŝŶŐĂƐĞ;/ZͿsƐĂƌĞĞƐƚŝŵĂƚĞƐŽĨŐĞŶĞƚŝĐĚŝĨĨĞƌĞŶĐĞƐŝŶƚŚĞĂďŝůŝƚLJŽĨĂƐŝƌĞ͛ƐĐĂůǀĞƐƚŽ be born unassisted from 2 year old heifers. The EBVs are reported as differences in the percentage of unassisted calvings. Higher, more positive, Calving Ease (DIR) EBVs are more favourable. For example, a bull with an EBV of +5.0% would be expected, on average, to produce 3% fewer difficult calvings from 2 year old heifers than a bull with an EBV of ʹ1.0% (6% difference between the sires, then halved as they only contribute half the genetics). Cow condition is a significant factor on the ability and ease of calving. Continued use of sires with easy calving may reduce the size of the cows and average pelvic area in the herd DTRS: ĂƵŐŚƚĞƌ͛Ɛ ĐĂůǀŝŶŐ ĞĂƐĞ ŝŶĚŝĐĂƚĞƐ ŚŽǁ ǁĞůů ƚŚĞ ĂŶŝŵĂl produces daughters that have easier calving.

The EBVs are also reported as differences in the percentage of unassisted calvings. Higher, more positive, Calving Ease (DTRS) EBVs are more favourable. For example, a bull with an EBV of +4.0% would be expected to on average produce daughters that have 3% less calving problems when calving at 2 years of age than the daughters of a bull with an EBV of ʹ 2.0%.


BIRTH AND FERTILITY GL: Gestation Length EBV (days) is based on AI records. Lower (negative) GL EBVs indicate shorter gestation lengths which generally relate to easier calving and increased growth after birth.

For example, a bull with a Gestation Length EBV of ʹ2 days would be expected to produce calves that are born earlier, and more easily, than a bull with a Gestation Length EBV of +2 days. BWT: Birth Weight EBV (kg) is based on the measured birth weight of animals, adjusted for dam age. The lower the value the lighter the calf at birth and the lower the likelihood of a difficult birth. This is particularly important when selecting sires for use over heifers. Birth Weight EBVs are

expressed in kilograms (kg) and are calculated based on weights of calves taken at birth. Small, or moderate, Birth Weight EBVs are more favourable. For example, a bull with a Birth Weight EBV of +2 kg would be expected to produce lighter calves at birth than a bull with a Birth Weight EBV of +6 kg, with a lower risk of a difficult birth. Please note, whilst low Birth Weight EBVs are favoured for calving ease they are also generally associated with lower overall growth potential. Consequently, birth weight and growth need to be carefully balanced. Fortunately, animals can be found that have both moderate Birth Weight EBVs and above average EBVs for later growth. SS: Scrotal Size EBV (cm) is an indicator of male fertility in regards to semen quality and quantity.Higher (positive) EBVs indicate higher fertility. Increased scrotal circumference is

associated with increased semen production in bulls, and earlier age at puberty of bull and heifer progeny. Increased scrotal circumference also has a favourable relationship with days to calving, such that bulls with larger scrotal circumference tend to have daughters with shorter days to calving. For example, a bull with a Scrotal Size EBV of +4 cm would be expected to produce sons with larger testicles at yearling age and daughters that reach puberty earlier than the progeny of a bull with a Scrotal Size EBV of -4 cm.

GROWTH MILK: 200 Day Milk EBVs are estimates an animal's maternal effect on the 200 day weight of its calf. In the case of sires, this estimates the maternal effect that his daughters will have on the 200 day weight of their progeny. The 200 Day Milk EBV is expressed as kilograms (kg) of calf live weight at 200 days (ie. the expected difference in the weight of the calf at 200 days due to the maternal effect (milk) of the cow). The 200 Day Milk EBV is calculated by partitioning the difference in the 200 day weight of calves into growth and milk components.

The optimum level of milk production potential among beef cows is dependent upon the production system and environment in which the cows are run. Selection for increased milk production may be warranted when cows are run under good nutritional conditions and calves are sold as weaners. However, some environments may not support high milking cows.


Larger, more positive, 200 Day Milk EBVs are generally more favourable, depending on the environment. For example, a bull with a 200 Day Milk EBV of +15 kg would be expected to sire daughters with higher milk production than a bull with 200 Day Milk EBV of +5 kg. This higher milk production potential should be reflected through higher weaning weights among the daughter's calves. 200: 200-Day Growth EBV (kg) is calculated from the weight of animals taken between 80 and 300 days of age. Values are adjusted to 200 days and for dam age. This EBV is the best single estimate of an animal's genetic merit for growth to early ages. 400: 400-Day Weight EBV (kg) is calculated from the weight of progeny taken between 301 and 500 days of age, adjusted to 400 days and for dam age. This EBV is the best single estimate of an animal's genetic merit for yearling weight. 600: 600-Day Weight EBV (kg) is calculated from the weight of progeny taken between 501 and 900 days of age, adjusted to 600 days and for dam age. This EBV is the best single estimate of an animal's genetic merit for growth beyond yearling age.

CARCASE CWT: Carcase Weight EBV (kg) estimates the genetic difference in carcase weight at a standard age of 650 days. EMA: Eye Muscle Area EBV (cm2) estimates genetic differences in eye muscle area of a 300kg dressed carcase. More positive EBVs indicate better muscling on animals. Larger, more positive,

EMA EBVs are generally more favourable. For example, a bull with an EMA EBV of +4 cm 2 would be expected to produce steer progeny with a greater degree of muscle expression than a bull with an EMA EBV of +1 cm2. RIB: Rib Fat EBV (mm) estimates the genetic differences in fat depth at the rib in a 300kg dressed carcase. More positive EBVs indicate more subcutaneous fat and earlier maturity. RBY%: Retail Beef Yield Percent EBV (%) represents total (boned out) meat yield as a percentage of a 300kg dressed carcase. A more positive EBV indicates higher percentage yield for the 300kg carcase size.

Terminal Index The BSCS Terminal index is aimed at a commercial herd using Simmental bulls over large framed, mixed breed cows to breed steers and heifers to turn off at 16 months of age. All progeny are destined for slaughter and no replacement females are selected from within the herd. There is some emphasis on calving ease while finishing steers at around 630 kg live weight (335 kg carcase weight) using a pasture based production system supplemented with extra rations during the finishing phase. Use this index in a commercial herd to produce progeny for slaughter. The index has moderate emphasis on easier calving (ie getting a live calf with minimal human interference) while producing calves that will then grow quickly to market specifications at around 16 months of age. The index is focused on slaughter animals and does not account for maternal traits and is therefore not suited to breeding replacement females. If you are using smaller framed cows or heifers in your herd, then you should also put extra emphasis on a higher calving ease direct EBV when selecting a sire using this index.


Self Replacing Index The BSCS Self Replacing index is aimed at a Simmental herd selecting replacement females from within the herd while breeding steers and excess heifers to turn off at 16 months of age. There is emphasis on calving ease and maternal traits while also looking to finish steers for slaughter at around 680 kg live weight (350 kg carcase weight) using a pasture based production system supplemented with extra rations during the finishing phase. This Self Replacing index is also suitable to using Simmental sires over mixed breed cows where replacement females are sourced from within the herd. There may be some hybrid vigour expressed in the progeny depending on the breed type of the cows used. Therefore you should consider placing extra emphasis on the Calving Ease EBVs (more positive) of the sire to allow for possible heavier birth weights of his calves due to hybrid vigour. Use this index in both commercial and pedigree herds where you are balancing the requirements of selecting replacement females while also producing animals for slaughter.
