The Berrytest progeny-test station was created in year 1977. The program was defined in order to simultaneously index for meat qualities, the rams issued from breeding plans, and also estimate the required genetic parameters. First results on genetic parameters were published in 1986 by Bouix et al., based on anonymous rams’ identification, and therefore considered as unrelated. These results come from the period 1989 - 2001, with known national identification.
