Breeding can help protect your herd from TB and Liver Fluke infection.

PTAs are interpretative of the expected prevalence of TB or Liver Fluke infection in that animal's progeny.
Therefore, lower PTAs are more desirable.

Progeny and Herdmate Performance

Date of Evaluation Trait Total Herds Total Progeny Records Average Progeny Prevalence Total Herdmate Records Average Herdmate Prevalence Interpretation
Mar 2023 TB (%) 45 65 3% of progeny were TB Reactors 3955 3% of herdmates were TB reactors Progeny had same prevalance as herdmates
Mar 2023 Liver Fluke (%) 80 113 18% of progeny had damaged livers 797 9% of herdmates had damaged livers Progeny had higher (worse) prevalance than herdmates
