AbstractFull Text

This study was carried out to investigate variance components, direct, maternal genetic parameters, estimated breeding values and factors affecting pre-weaning growth criteria of Romney sheep. Data were collected over the period from 2006 to 2012 with records of 4989 lambs descended from 76 rams...

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:...
