New chart toppers in the Dutch rankings!
The Dutch gNVI indexes just came in and are ONLINE available. This December 2023 index run, the Animal Evaluation Unit of Cooperative CRV will adjust the calculation of genomic breeding values. The new calculation model ensures higher reliability of the genomic breeding values. In average, reliability increases by 11 percent. The reliability of the NVI increases by 9 percent. The increase is sometimes even greater for individual bulls. Functional traits as livability, udder health and claw health in particular benefit from the new calculation.
The #1 NVI B&W Genomic sire this run is Ridercup son Tigerwoods at +400 gNVI. He is followed by the Rover son who ranks also high in Germany: Real Syn at +399 gNVI and making the Top 3 complete with Vh Sitron at +393 gNVI. Chart topper in the R&W Genomic NVI index is Zhw Stripes at +385 NVI. He is followed by Delta Borax-Red at +374 gNVI and making the top 3 complete with Grando Red son 3STAR Poppe Tiger-Red. Furthermore at the 4th spot we find NH Skyliner-Red at +368 gNVI. At the 15th spot we find DG Maserati-Red at +335gNVI. He is a Koepon Camden son tracing back to KHW Goldwyn Aiko EX-91-USA!
