Genetic Quality of Service Fees

With the Northern Hemisphere breeding season is fast approaching, I thought it would be timely to post a study on the relationship between stallion service fees and genetic merit. The study was done a couple of years ago now (2007), but the findings are pertinent nonetheless. In particular the summary "while there are good genes to be bought, a stallion's fees are not an honest signal of his genetic quality and are a poor predictor of a foal's prize winning potential" Have a look at the paper here.
