AbstractFull Text

The aims of this study were to estimate genetics parameters for average daily gain from birth to weaning (DGBW) and post weaning average daily weight gain (PDWG) of animals of the Nellore breed, born from 1978 to 2007. Data was provided by File zootechni cal covenant ABCZ/EMBRAPA/MAPA. The dataset...

Abstract

A 4-year crossing scheme involving Spanish V-line (V) and Egyptian Baladi Red (B) rabbits was practiced to produce five genetic groups of V, B, 1/2B1/2V, (1/2B1/2V)2 and ((1/2B1/2V)2)2. A new line with a genetic structure of ((1/2B1/2V)2)2 was synthesized and named APRI. A total of 2834 litters...

Abstract

A total of 4627 records on preweaning growth traits, birth weight (BW), weaning weight (WW) and preweaning daily gain (ADG) of Hanwoo's born form 1970 to 2005 were collected from Hanwoo Experiment Station, National Livestock Research Institute. Variance components and heritabilities of BW, WW and...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of the covariance between maternal and direct effects on the estimates of genetic parameters and on the predictions of breeding values for days to gain 160 kg in the preweaning period (D160). The analysis were carried out using the MTDFREML...

Abstract

This study estimated the genetic parameters for preweaning average daily gain (ADG) and the number of days to gain 160 kg (D160) in Nelore cattle. 39 409 calf records from 855 sires, 19 627 dams, and 1930 contemporary groups were used. Heritability estimates (restricted maximum likelihood -...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate selection criteria in Gyr [Gir] cattle based on the traits such as average daily gain from birth to weaning (ADG) and number of days to gain 160 kg from birth to weaning (D160). Data from the Brazilian Association of Zebu Breeders of 16 592 calves, 507 sires,...
