Term Definition
The accuracy of an EPD is a measure of how true the EPD is to the animal's actual (but unknown) genetic value. Accuracy values range from 0 to 1 with 0 meaning the EPD is not close to the animal's true breeding value and 1 meaning the EPD is exactly the animal's true breeding value. The accuracy is based on the amount and the type of data used to generate the EPDs. With more information on an animal and more information from progeny as opposed to distant relatives, the accuracy will improve.
