This on-screen instructional resource helps users understand expected progeny differences (EPDs) and performance data and apply them to the animal breeding industry. The slide sets, created in Microsoft PowerPoint, have been completely updated with the most current information at the time of publication.

This CD includes in-depth explanations of beef, swine, and sheep terminology; introduction to the methods and applications of data; genetic transfer of abnormal traits; practice classes designed to interpret data; and step-by-step recommendations for sorting through a class of production animals. Also included are printable practice problems, livestock standards, term quizzes (with keys), and forms to create student worksheets. All forms can be printed, duplicated and distributed to students.

Use this resource for teaching EPDs and performance data; it is also a handy tool for preparing a livestock judging team for performance classes.
