Beef Progeny Test
Sire Report for Cohorts 1-5 | October 2020
Below are summarised visual graphs taken from 2020’s report to highlight Simmental’s performance in both Cohort 1 and Cohort 5.
Trait values (in wean weight/18 month weight on the Y axis of the below visuals) are the average performance of sires’ progeny. Values are calculated after adjusting for herd, management group, age of dam and age of animal (based on estimated conception date).
Cohort 1 – 2015 born progeny
