AbstractFull Text

A total 1905 first farrowing records of Landrace × Desi individual pigs were analyzed to study effect of various non genetic factors on different pre-weaning individual body weights and to estimate of breeding values of boars for weaning weight. The average least squares means for BW, 15dW, 28dW,...

The objective of this study was to estimate genetic parameters associated with lamb survival for preweaning mortality and mortality at birth. Records used (n = 62,113; 2000 to 2015) for this study were a subset of much larger dataset (n = 270,400) from 1950 to 2015 as a preliminary investigation of ...

AbstractFull Text

Aim: The aim of this study was to estimate the heritability, genetic and phenotypic correlations, and the genetic trends for pre-weaning growth traits including the birth weight (BWT), weaning weight (WWT), pre-weaning daily gain (PWDG), and weaning age (WA) in Awassi lambs. Materials and Methods:...
