Dairy Evaluation Results
Below is a lists of tables with proofs and related information for bulls from the most recent genetic evaluation. All proofs have been published via the central database. As usual, ranking of bulls has been based on the EBI. The files however contains more detailed information about the bulls (e.g. pedigree information). proofs for Irish bulls (with Irish AI code and daughters milking) have been separated from Foreign bulls to make it easier to search through the list. All tables contain proofs for production, Linear type, calving interval and survival traits where available.
Getting proofs for Individual bulls
Searching for individual bulls is now possible but for all bulls. There are options to search for bulls either by their Irish AI code (if they have one) or by the last 6 digits of their herd-book number. It is also possible to search for a bull using the name.

Bull proofs (May 2018)
1) Proofs for all bulls of all breeds. All bulls have an Irish AI code, either a domestic, foreign or genomic proof and have a minimum EBI reliability of 25% with a progeny based calving proof.
