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


Each animal's breeding value is expressed as the predicted prevalence of TB or Liver Fluke for that animal's progeny.
Therefore, a lower PTA value is 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
Jan 2020 TB (%) 108 17% of progeny were TB Reactors 2692 5% of herdmates were TB reactors Progeny had higher (worse) prevalance than herdmates
Jan 2020 Liver Fluke (%) 0% of progeny had damaged livers 0% of herdmates had damaged livers Neither Progeny nor Herdmate records were used to estimate breeding values for this animal
