Gold award 2004 at SIA
The gold medal is awarded to a farmer and his technician, for technical quality and economic livestock.
It is measured in four positions:
genetic value and consideration of racial orientations (IVMAT females)
reproduction (calving interval / average calving herd)
growth (PAT 210 days corrected the herd)
and the choice of sires.
Genetic criteria account for 30% in the classification, technical criteria represent 40% (30% for IVV and 10% for PAT 210 days).
The integration of scores is essential for good data collection.
