New information – AWA MS, CW EBVs and TCI

In response to member enquiries, the AWA has expanded its explanation of the way that Wagyu BREEDPLAN Marble Score and Carcass Weight Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) are calculated. These EBVs are the basis of the current TCI (Terminal Carcass Index).

Additional information and examples to enable enhanced member understanding of the two key metrics underpinning the TCI and the TCI itself is now available in a Technical Paper co-authored by AWA CEO Dr Matt McDonagh and Technical Services Manager, Carel Teseling.

Further details and to download the technical paper are available here.
