FIRST THREE-YEAR-AVERAGE REPORT FOR THE WEST AUSTRALIAN RANDOM SAMPLE LAYING TEST COVERING THE 4th, 5th AND 6th TESTS
Despite every effort made to provide all entries in individual tests with a uniform environment it is still possible for a particular entry's performance not to be a true indication of its inherent ability.
Random Sample Test results should therefore be viewed on a long term, annual, consecutive basis. If the yearly results for a given hatchery are grouped together and averaged over a period of several years irregularities in performance due to factors other than genetic worth are minimised and a clearer picture of the stocks true worth is obtained.
