Subindices for new beef breeds

In November 2023 nine new beef breeds were included into NAV purebred beef evaluation. First, only breeding values for single traits were published but now NAV has also published subindices for new beef breeds. Seven subindices include same traits for all breeds, but weight factors are breed specific.

Read more about the subindices from NAV newsletter and from a paper New indexes for nine beef breeds.

More information about the beef breeding values and publication can be found at NAV homepage under Beef publication.
