World Angus Evaluation improves US, Australian, Canadian EPDs
As both the world and the cattle industry become more and more data-driven, Angus breeders want user-friendly tools they can trust. One such tool, the World Angus Evaluation (WAE), is released as of October 13. It aims to help eliminate hurdles for cattlemen participating in international commerce with Angus genetics.
Participating groups – the American Angus Association®, the Canadian Angus Association and Angus Australia – have analyzed the breed’s genetics globally to create an international tool for genetic comparisons. The evaluation also uses data from the three groups to improve accuracies for 11 expected progeny differences (EPDs).
