Interbull, a permanent sub-committee of the International Committee for Animal Recording, is a professional organisation offering international genetic evaluations and other services to its members in more than 40 countries worldwide. Interbull plans are realised at its operational unit, the Interbull Centre, based under contract at the Dept. of Animal Breeding and Genetics (DABG), Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Uppsala. The Interbull Centre is also appointed as an EU reference laboratory for bovine genetic evaluations. The Interbull Centre is presently conducting on its own, or in collaboration with its international partners, international genetic evaluations of dairy bulls for production, conformation, udder health, longevity, calving, and female fertility traits and additional functional traits are expected to be added to the service portfolio in the near future. In a special project international genetic evaluations are also developed for beef breeds. The current Interbull Centre Director will end his appointment by end of June 2008 and a replacement is therefore sought.
