Financial donations are accepted to support the subsequent rounds of EBV calculations each year.
Each round is performed by a statistician, expert in software application and interpretation, who must curate and model the OFA data.
This process is not trivial. Each new round costs about $5,000 to implement.
Donations can be sent to Ms. Carol Merkur, Department of Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853. Please earmark for “New Breeding Value Statistics”. Thank you!
