Only EBVs produced in the same BREEDPLAN analysis can be directly compared. For example, EBVs from the Australian Charolais BREEDPLAN analysis are not comparable to EBVs from the Australian Brahman BREEDPLAN analysis.

For more information, see the Comparing EBVs from Different Analyses tip sheet

For example, a Brahman Analysis can be compared to other brahman analysis from contemporary groups, but shouldn’t be compared to the analysis of a different breed or animals with analysis run different times.

Each BREEDPLAN analysis is run regularly throughout the year. For example, many Australian breeds have a monthly BREEDPLAN analysis. EBVs produced at different times (e.g. April vs May) should not be compared.

Key message

Only BREEDPLAN EBVs produced in the same BREEDPLAN analysis should be compared
