This index has been created to replace the outdated Carcase Plus index. It aims to assist producers to achieve both gains in their major production traits, such as post-weaning weight and muscling, as well as ensuring consumer satisfaction from lamb is maintained through focusing on key eating quality traits such as shear force (tenderness) and intramuscular fat (marbling). It is similar to the LEQ index, but unlike LEQ it does not include worm resistance (WEC). For more info on Lambplan check out our breeding values explanations page.
