Missing Lamb Survival eBVs & indexes - SIL-ACE Lists & RamFinder
Issue resolved. *** UPDATE ***
Some flocks were missing Lamb Survival information in Feb-2011 SIL-ACE
Due to an issue with the way flock connectedness is calculated, animals in some flocks were not listed on SIL-ACE Leader Lists for Lamb Survival and did not get Lamb Survival eBVs, and indexes based on these, displayed in RamFinder results.
This may have led to the assumption that a flock is not collecting good Lamb Survival information routinely when in fact the flock has collected good data in all but the last year (2010). So Lamb Survival eBVs, and indexes containing these, for animals born in other years and their sires will be OK. However in the Feb-2011 SIL-ACE results that was not reflected in what was reported.
SIL has now resolved this issue as of 4-may-2011. The issue does not occur in the Apr-2011 SIL-ACE results.
