Actual weights can vary significantly from ancestry liveweight breeding values and accurate data will allow you to identify more efficient converters of feed into profit.
Analysis from some herds weighed in the summer of 2018, saw individual weights differ to the ancestral weight calculated for the animal. Some of these weights varied by up to + or – 100kgs.
After the weight data was entered, the animal PWs moved in the range of +90 PW to -90 PW.
