AbstractFull Text

The objective of this work was to study "days for a specific weight" traits in Nelore breeding programs comparing them with traditional traits such as average daily weight gain. Thus, this study aimed to estimate genetic parameters for days to reach 180 kg (D180), days to reach 300 kg (D300),...

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

Records of birth weight (BWT) and weaning weight (WWT) of 1184 Friesian cattle calves (591 male and 593 female), progeny of 49 sires during the period from 1990 to 2000 were analysed. The objective of this study was to construct selection indices for selecting Friesian calves on the basis of...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to estimate (co)variance components and genetic parameters such as heritabilities and correlations and genetic and phenotypic trends for birth weight (PN), weaning weight (PD) and 205-day adjusted liveweight gain (GNDA) in Devon cattle in Brazil. A total of 23 369...

Abstract

Colombia has eight Creole breeds (Bos taurus), these being descended from the cattle introduced by the Spanish conquerors in 1493, during Christopher Columbus' second voyage. The Sanmartinero (SM) breed originated in the Colombian Orinoquia region's foothills. This breed (as well as most other...

Abstract

Variance components were estimated using data from Brahman (4497 calves from 266 sires and 1311 dams) cattle at ANSA Genetics, Philippines. The traits were birth weight (BW), preweaning average daily gain (PRADG), preweaning gain (PRGAIN), and adjusted 210-day weaning weight (ADWW). The phenotypic...

Abstract

The project was set up to investigate the best types of crossbred for local conditions, the heritability of performance traits, and nutritional requirements. The intention is to use the results in the development of a new breed for Thailand. In April 1965 there were 273 pigs of 11 types in the...
