Technical EU Reports

  • Overview of national procedures in performance recording and evaluations
    for trait groups included in PREP database

These reports contain the description of standardized information gathered from GE/GENO/BEEF forms. The information was collected from the free text forms and stanradized in order to include this information to PREP database. At the same time, when the information was standardized, we were able to see the patterns within and across the countries, similarities and differences and these were the basis of the reports below. The reports are presented by trait group:



Production traits - report and data tables

Calving traits - overview and recomendations for harmonisation
