Sheep Genetics is currently in the early stages of the research pipeline to develop a future shedding score ASBV.
Sheep Genetics is calling on breeders to start collecting and submitting shedding score data to contribute towards the development of an ASBV Shedding Score and Future Guidelines.
When recording shedding score data, submit this in the visuals – the trait names accepted by the analysis include “SHED”, “SHEDDING SCORE”, and “SHEDDING”
