Understanding BREEDPLAN Management Groups

Proper identification of Management Groups is one of the most critical components of BREEDPLAN recording.

Management groups are used to allow for the accurate comparison of performance records within similar groups run under one environment.

Shorthorn BREEDPLAN is calculated on performance records from cattle run as one management group. The importance of this is to remove as many non genetic factors as possible (seasons, available feed, age, etc..). This means that only cattle that have had equal opportunity to perform are compared directly to one another.

This does not mean that cattle from other groups should not have performance measurements recorded, merely that animals from different management groups should be appropriately recorded against their correct mobs.
