The fourth NAV routine evaluation this year took place as scheduled. The NAV Bull Search has been updated with the new EBV’s and GEBV’s.
In this evaluation new updated NTM weights were implemented for Holstein, Nordic red breeds and Jersey. The update of the breeding goal takes place 10 years after that NTM was first published in 2008.
At the same time other changes were introduced at this evaluation such as new weight factors within yield index and new weighting of lactations within several traits. Also weights within udder index for Holstein and frame index for Nordic red breeds were updated.
