MERINOSELECT is the national genetic information and benchmarking service for the Merino industry. 

MERINOSELECT is managed by Sheep Genetics, as part of Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA).

Sheep Genetics also manages the Dohne analysis, and as part LAMBPLAN the Maternal and Terminal analysis as well.

MERINOSELECT provides a single national language in the form of "across flock" Australian Sheep Breeding Values (ASBVs) and "within flock" Flock Breeding Values (FBVs) for Merino Breeders.

Ram breeders and commercial woolgrowers can use Breeding Values to compare the genetic potential of rams and ewes for a range of commercial traits, independent of the environment and location.

Sheep Genetics also provides genetic benchmarks for the prime lamb industry through LAMBPLAN.

Sheep Genetics is based in Armidale, NSW.
