Abstract:
Currently, most registered bulls have information available from their own performance records, progeny, or relatives, which enable us to predict the performance of future offspring for various traits. An expected progeny difference or EPD is the difference in some trait which one can expect when compared to other animals of the same breed. This publication explains in detail the process of using EPDs to predict the performance of future offspring of a bull.
