The article focuses on the belief of Perthshire Charolais breeder David Walter that highly heritable traits such as eye-muscle depth can rapidly prove the financial advantages of high estimated breeding values (EBV) sires to buyers of crossing bulls. The huge amount of performance data that can be used through EBV have a vital part to play in how the Charolais continues to develop as a breed.
