MERINOSELECT is the national genetic information and benchmarking service for the Merino industry.
MERINOSELECT is managed by Sheep Genetics - a joint venture between AWI and Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA).
Sheep Genetics provides a single national language in the form of "across flock" Australian Sheep Breeding Values (ASBVs) and "within flock" Flock Breeding Values (FBVs). 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, funded solely by prime lamb breeders and MLA.
Sheep Genetics is based in Armidale, NSW.
