New ebvs available for our Lleyn sheep.

New ebvs have been released for the Lleyn breed and reflect the hard work and expense we have been putting into recording the extra data required.

We now have, subject to accuracy levels, ebvs for:-

  • Lamb Survival.
  • Age at first lambing.
  • Lambing Interval.
  • Longivity.
  • Birthweight.
  • FEC combined.
  • FEC Strongyle.
  • FEC Nemoatodirus.
  • Saliva IgA.

There is also a new improved index designed to reflect commercial objectives more closely. This becomes more important as the expansion in ebvs now makes selection more complex.
