Simmental Breedplan using the Percentile Table to rank animals within the breed
The Percentile Band Table indicates where an animal ranks in the breed for each of its trait EBVs.
The Breed Average EBVs are shown as the “Highest 50%” percentile.
An animal with a 200 Day Weight EBV of +25 kg ranks in the Top 10% of the breed when compared with all the 2009 calving year animals analysed in the 2011 (Autumn) Simmental Group Breedplan.
An animal with a Birth Weight EBV of +0.8 kg ranks in the Top 30% of the breed.
An animal with a Calving Ease Direct EBV of –1.9% ranks in the Lowest 20% of the breed for this trait.
