Improver Rams

 

Improver Rams' Lists


The Improver Rams lists allow you to find evaluated animals on GenOvis genetic evaluation program and which are improvers in their breed. An improver animal is an animal that performs better than its breed's average. Thus by buying improver animals, you will increase your flock performances.

For paternal breed, improver animals must have a Gain Index (GAIN) or a Carcass Index (CARC) higher than the breed average (percentile 50% or more)Maternal rams must have a Maternal Index (MAT), Maternal Ultrasounds Index (MAT-U), Maternal Higher Prolificacy Index (MAT-HP) or Maternal Ultrasounds Higher Prolificacy (MAT-UHP) higher than 75% to appear on this list. A more severe selection on maternal rams is done for two reasons. First, maternal rams demand is lower than paternal rams. Second, growth traits are more transmissible than reproduction traits.

You will find well evaluated rams to increase your flock performances in these lists.

To get the owner’s name of animals present on these lists, look at the Participants List located on the home page. You will find there the name and the coordinates of the owners.

IMPORTANT: To publish breeds' improver rams' lists, there must be a minimum of 3 producers who have evaluated a total of 100 ewes in the genetic program durring the year.
