Dairy Cattle Breeding Values

Official results of most recent evaluation run for bulls:

National bull data base (EBVs August 2017)

Included are all A.I. bulls from Germany, Austria and Luxembourg with at least official milk production index (RZM). You can find individual bulls or select bulls for every individual trait or a combination of traits at the same time. Every individual bull can be printed as catalog page. Click on "bull data base" in the table to be connected.


Monthly updates for newly released A.I. bulls with genomic breeding values (1st Tuesday in month).

*1) genomic EBV and no daughter information/daughters in <10 herds for milk or conformation
*2) only actively marketed daughter proven bulls
*3) all daughter proven bulls with min. 500 daughters in milk production EBV

International bulls (August 2017)

Since April 2014:
- all daughter proven bulls distributed by Interbull (MACE)
- all genomic bulls distributed by Interbull (GMACE)

National gEBV (gD) have priority to GMACE reults (gI, gM).

Fitness index RZFit (August 2017)

On request of the breeding organizations vit calculates since August 2009 a fitness index (RZFit; relative breeding value fitness) for German Holstein and Red Holstein A.I. bulls (see Excel file „RZFit.xls“). Background information is given in the PDF file „Fitnessindex_RZFit.pdf“.

Notice: Update of RZFit files 19.4.2016 because of incorrect values in publication of April 5th.

Robot-Index RZRobot (August 2017)

 

Since August 2014 German Holstein Association (DHV) publishes a list of active German A.I. bulls that are especially suitable for farms with automatic milking systems. The Excel file (one sheet per breed, Holstein/Red-Holstein split for daughter-proven/genomic) includes only active German A.I. bulls. with RZRobot >=100.
More information on the calculation of RZRobot gives the PDF.
