APPENDIX VII - Guidelines for minimum requirements for advertising genetic merit of dairy animals

Evaluations shall be presented in the same units they are published in by the Units that provide them. Those evaluations are often national evaluations, but may be Interbull evaluations or converted evaluations where the Unit that provides them recognises such evaluations. Each Unit (country) is to have only one scale (evaluation expression and units) for yield traits. In no case shall units or expressions be manipulated, such as presentation of US evaluations as EBV, instead of PTA as officially used, or values normally expressed as EBV in kg shown as EBV in lbs.

This code is focused on the advertising of animals, individually or in lists. It does not preclude the presentation of results on other scales as may be appropriate and necessary for scientific papers and similar reports not distributed for general consumption or for merchandising.
