The Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) and Selection Indexes published in BREEDPLAN® evaluations provide an understanding of the genetic merit of an individual animal. Effective use of this information in animal selection decisions drives genetic progress and improves the bottom line of livestock operations.

This module outlines how to interpret BREEDPLAN® EBVs and Selection Indexes. The utilisation of BREEDPLAN® information as part of animal selection decisions (alongside visual assessment) is also explored.
