by Frank Hynes
Are you purchasing a ram this year?If the answer is yes,you should make use of Lambplus ‘€uro – Star' evaluations if available.Sheep bred in flocks that participated in the ‘Lambplus' Sheep Breeding Scheme have their ‘€uro – Star' evaluations printed in sales catalogues.The €uro-Star figures should be used as a tool to help in the selection process.The higher the accuracy % of the figures the more use can be made of this selection tool.
The way in which the €uro-Star evaluations are presented is intended to be as easy to understand as possible.亚博体育官网无法取款Animals with high genetic potential are marked as 5 Star with the lower genetic potential animals marked as 1 Star.The €uro-Star evaluations are one of a number of tools upon which you should make your decision.Flock owners should
- firstly select rams that satisfy the individual requirements from a physical point of view (physical appearance,soundness of legs,quality of sexual organs etc)
- secondly turn to the €uro-Star evaluations selecting rams with higher star ratings for particular traits you want to improve.
This ensures you are getting the physical qualities married to the genetic qualities,the ideal match.
