Tools / NZGE
The New Zealand Genetic Evaluation (NZGE) is the national across flock and across breed sheep evaluation that identifies the best rams for economic traits.
NZGE provides the relevant information for FlockFinder, RamFinder and the Sire Leader Lists. FlockFinder is a tool to help locate flocks with genetic information on specific traits. RamFinder is a tool to identify individual animals with specific combinations of genetic merit across traits. The Sire Leader Lists identify the top 200 high genetic merit sires for a number of indexes and goal traits. (These lists can be downloaded in pdf and comma delimited text file (csv file) formats.)
All performance-recording SIL flocks are automatically considered for NZGE reporting, unless they “opt out”. If you do not want data from your flock included, please contact us.
