In 2007, AWI and Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) developed Visual Sheep Scores to provide the sheep industry with a standardised set of visual assessment scores for all breeds of sheep.
Consistent Visual Sheep Scores, recorded and submitted by sheep breeders and classers to Sheep Genetics, made it possible to develop MERINOSELECT Australian Sheep Breeding Values (ASBVs) for visually assessed traits.
A 2012 update aligned the Visual Sheep Scores with current industry requirements. The following traits are included in the Commercial version of the Visual Sheep Scores guide. A separate Researcher version is also available with an extended range of traits.
