Autumn Calving Sires

Autumn Calving Index (£ACI) - This category contains all sires across-breeds that are higher than £450 for ACI.

The £ACI is a new genetic index introduced in August 2018. It provides UK farmers operating an autumn block calving system, with a higher requirement for winter feeding and targeting production of around 7,500 kgs/yr, with an across-breed evaluation to highlight bulls suitable for their system. The index has been calculated on its own base and for a specific farming system; so comparison of bulls on the £PLI or £SCI list is not possible.

As with the £SCI, the index has been developed to provide an initial screen tool to ensure bulls used on farm meet specific criteria. It is then recommended specific emphasis is placed on the management traits that require attention on individual farms*. The main features of the new index are shown below.
