EVALUATION OF THE BREEDING STOCK AND GENETIC QUALIFICATION
The qualification of breeding stock is based on the official results of performance testing and genetic evaluation obtained on farm and in ram evaluation centres. The Sheep Breeding Organisation (O.S.) GEODE is responsible for the implementation of the qualification criteria on farms ( as defined by all the partners of each breed society). All the ewes in our breeding registers are inspected on farm through official performance monitoring. The ewes are registered in the flock book of the breed and become part of the selection programme for each breed.
All ewes in our selection bases are officially inspected on farm through the official growth control. They are registered in the breed herd book and participate in the various stages of the selection programme for each breed.
