Percentile Bands Tables


Percentile bands tables provide a useful benchmarking resource for indexes and breeding values for connected flocks within the New Zealand Genetic Evaluation (NZGE). Each month, the percentile bands tables are produced from the most recent NZGE run for Maternal and Terminal traits.

The percentile bands table for young rams is based on all animals born in the previous full birth year, in NZGE connected flocks. This represents a wider group than the sire percentile bands table, as it is all young animals born in that birth year – many of which will not end up being offered for sale.

If purchasing rams for commercial use, use the young ram percentile bands table.

The Research NZGE Terminal evaluation (using terminal breed genotypes) has been released under research status, which means some adjustments to breeding value calculations may still occur before it is finalised.  More detail about this evaluation is available here.

 

Sire Percentile Bands Tables

For benchmarking NZGE values for stud sires, young stud sires and for use with the NZGE leader lists.
Based on sires with progeny in the last three years in genetically connected flocks

Research Terminal Percentile Bands Tables

Values from the Research NZGE Terminal evaluations are slightly lower on average than NZGE Maternal evaluations.
Percentile band tables allow relative comparison of NZGE results.
