We started in 1984 by breeding Brahman bulls to top

characteristics and obtain EBV's.
"In the next 10 years DNA testing for certain traits
become the most important selection criteria. Weighing
and measuring will still take place. Combined EBV's will
be available. Visual appraisal
will always stay important." (Dr. R. Hunsley, 2008)
