|Title:||Genetic evaluation for the beef industry in Australia||Contributor(s):||Graser, HU (author); Tier, B (author); Johnston, D (author); Barwick, S (author)||Publication Date:||2005||DOI:||10.1071/EA05075||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/793||Abstract:||In Australia, genetic evaluation for beef cattle 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 developments of coming years.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture, 45(8), p. 913-921||Publisher:||CSIRO Publishing||Place of Publication:||Victoria, Australia||ISSN:||0816-1089||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 122
