AbstractFull Text

Data on 6054 Sirohi kids of 112 sires born during 2004 to 2016 in farmers' flocks under All India Coordinated Research Project on Goat Improvement, Vallabhnagar (Udaipur) were utilized to estimate the average daily gains (ADG) at different growth stages. The overall least-squares means of ADG for...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to evaluate non-genetic factors and genetic parameters of the growth traits in Sumba Ongole (SO) cattle. The growth traits were consisted of birth weight (BW), weaning weight (WW), yearling weight (YW), average daily gain of pre-weaning (ADG1) and post-weaning (ADG2). Data ...

Abstract

Genetic parameters were estimated for weights at birth (BW), 30 days (MW), 120 days weaning weight (WW), and pre-weaning average daily gain (PRADG) of four flocks of Mengali sheep maintained at the Experimental Station CASVAB, Quetta, (ESC), Mastung, Noshki and Quetta over a period of 5 years from...

AbstractFull Text

The absolute growth rate (Average Daily Gain) of Madras Red sheep at different stages of growth from birth to 12 months was analyzed and the influence of non-genetic factors on them was assessed. The mean absolute growth rate for birth-3 months, 3-6, 6-9 and 9-12 months were 73.74±0.14, 60.17±0.27, ...

Abstract

Three different models including or not the direct and maternal non-additive effects and the fixed effects of contemporary group, parity order, direct and maternal heterosis and the direct and maternal additive genetic random effects were compared for predicting breeding values of pre-weaning daily ...
