    AUCTION RAM ASBV AVERAGES
    Growth Traits
    • POST WEANING WEIGHT (PWWT)

      Post Weaning Weight (kg) - Rams with a more positive PWWT ASBV produce progeny that grow quicker and are heavier at 200 days of age (7-10 months). 

      MerinoSelect Run 7th August 2021
    • YEARLING WEIGHT (YWT)

      Yearling Weight (kg) - Rams with a more positive YWT ASBV produce progeny that grow quicker and are heavier at 300 days of age (10-13 months).

      MerinoSelect Run 7th August 2021
    • ADULT WEIGHT (AWT)

      Adult Weight (kg) - Rams with a more positive AWT ASBV produce progeny that grow quicker and are heavier as an adult (>18 months). 

      MerinoSelect Run 7th August 2021
      Wools Traits
      • YEARLING CLEAN FLEECE WEIGHT (YCFW)

        Yearling Clean Fleece Weight (%) - Rams with higher YCFW ASBVs produce progeny which will cut more wool as a yearling (10-13 months). 

        MerinoSelect Run 7th August 2021
      • ADULT CLEAN FLEECE WEIGHT (ACFW)

        Adult Clean Fleece Weight (%) - Rams with higher ACFW ASBVs produce progeny which will cut more wool as an adult (>18 months).

        MerinoSelect Run 7th August 2021
      • YEARLING FIBRE DIAMETER (YFD)

        Yearling Fibre Diameter (µm) - Rams with more negative YFD ASBVs produce progeny which are finer as a yearling (10-13 months). 

        MerinoSelect Run 7th August 2021
      • YEARLING STAPLE LENGTH (YSL)

        Yearling Staple Length (mm) - Rams with more positive YSL ASBVs will produce progeny with longer fibre length at 300 days of age (10-13 months).

        MerinoSelect Run 7th August 2021
        Breech Traits
        • EARLY BREECH WRINKLE (EBWR)

          Early Breech Wrinkle (Score) - Rams with a lower breech wrinkle will produce progeny that have a lower degree of wrinkle in the breech area. Pooginook collects this raw data at lamb marking and importantly again at 12 months of age. Additionally, we are using 50k DNA genomics testing to improve the EBWR ASBV accuracy.

          MerinoSelect Run 7th August 2021
          Carcass Traits
          • YEARLING FAT (YFAT)

            Fat Depth (mm) - Rams with more negative FAT ASBVs produce progeny that are leaner. FAT ASBVs estimate the genetic difference between animals in GR fat depth.

            MerinoSelect Run 7th August 2021
          • YEARLING EYE MUSCLE DEPTH (YEMD)

            Eye Muscle Depth (mm) - Rams with more positive ASBVs for YEMD will produce progeny that have more muscle, independent of weight, and a higher lean meat yield. YEMD ASBVs estimate the genetic difference between animals in eye muscle depth at the C site.


            MerinoSelect Run 7th August 2021
            Fertility Traits
            • NUMBER OF LAMBS WEANED (NLW)

              Number of Lambs Weaned (%) - Rams with more positive NLW ASBVs will sire daughters that wean a higher percentage of lambs. NLW ASBVs estimate the genetic difference between animals for the number of lambs weaned at each lambing opportunity.
