|Title:||Genetic Evaluation for the beef industry in Australia||Contributor(s):||Graser, Hans Ulrich (author); Tier, Bruce (author); Johnston, David (author); Barwick, Stephen (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4508||Abstract:||Genetic evaluation for beef cattle in Australia has been performed using an animal model with best linear unbiased prediction since 1984. The evaluation procedures have evolved from simple to more complex models and from few to a large number of traits, including traits for reproduction, growth and carcass characteristics. This paper describes in detail the current beef cattle genetic evaluation system 'BREEDPLAN' used for the Australian beef cattle industry, the traits analysed and underlying models, and presents a short overview of the challenges and planned development of coming years.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Application of new genetic technologies to animal breeding: Proceedings of the 16th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Noosa Lakes, Australia, 25th September - 28th September, 2005||Conference Details:||Application of new genetic technologies to animal breeding: Proceedings of the 16th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Noosa Lakes, Australia, 25th September - 28th September, 2005||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 16th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, p. 913-921||Publisher:||CSIRO Publishing||Place of Publication:||Collingwood, Australia||ISSN:||1328-3227||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||830301 Beef Cattle||HERDC Category Description:||E3 Extract of Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.aaabg.org/livestocklibrary/2005/250huisman.pdf
