Data submission process

Data submission process

Step one: Submitting data

Submit your data that has been recorded in one of the compatible software programs, including the:

  • pedigree
  • measurements for traits
  • dates
  • management groups.

There is commercial and free software available. 

If you require help submitting your data, see the list of data managers.

Step two: Validation and error fixing

Each of the recommended software programs have inbuilt validation. This validation identifies mistakes that you can correct before submitting your data file.

Step three: Submission to the database

Using your software, create an export of your data and email it to database@sheepgenetics.org.au. Sheep Genetics will notify you via email when your data is added to the run. Please ensure you send your file before 5pm NSW time on the date of the run. See list of analysis dates.

Step four: Results

Sheep Genetics will email your results from a run to your nominated email addresses. The results files will also be available from the online dashboard when you are logged in within 10 working days of the run cut-off date.
