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.
PTAs are only provided for animals that are either genotyped or have at least 20 progeny records.
|Date of Evaluation||Trait||Total Herds||Total Progeny Records||Average Progeny Prevalence||Total Herdmate Records||Average Herdmate Prevalence||Interpretation|
|Jul 2021||TB (%)||353||610||5% of progeny were TB Reactors||18785||5% of herdmates were TB reactors||Progeny had same prevalance as herdmates|
|May 2021||TB (%)||338||588||5% of progeny were TB Reactors||17766||5% of herdmates were TB reactors||Progeny had same prevalance as herdmates|
|Jul 2021||Liver Fluke (%)||766||1424||13% of progeny had damaged livers||6795||10% of herdmates had damaged livers||Progeny had higher (worse) prevalance than herdmates|
|May 2021||Liver Fluke (%)||740||1367||13% of progeny had damaged livers||6465||11% of herdmates had damaged livers||Progeny had higher (worse) prevalance than herdmates|
