Deer Select is the New Zealand’s national deer recording database. Deer Select stores pedigree and performance (trait) records, then uses this data to provide estimated breeding values and economic indices. Deer stud breeders can use these breeding values and indexes to make selection decisions and monitor their genetic progress within the nationally recorded herd. Commercial herds can use breeding values and indexes to select stud breeders and make purchase decisions based on directly comparable data across different stud herds.
