Sheep Genetics Australia (SGA) was established to deliver a national across-flock genetic evaluation to the Australian sheep industry. SGA provides genetic information products for both meat and wool sheep. To achieve the aim of providing a single national genetic evaluation language for Australian sheep breeders, significant changes were necessary and various new developments made. The research and developments included; amalgamation of databases, data transformations, refinement of the analysis models, genetic group allocations, updated genetic parameters, multiple trait across-flock linkage assessments, index development and reporting changes. This paper describes SGA and the analysis used to estimate Australian Sheep Breeding Values (ASBVs).
