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...

Abstract

The preweaning body weights at birth and at 1, 2, 3 and 4 weeks of age, average daily gain (ADG) during the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th weeks of age and cumulative ADG (CADG) up to 2, 3 and 4 weeks of age were analysed in 171 Soviet Chinchilla bunnies. The season of birth significantly affected the body...

Abstract

Birth weight (BWT), 205-day adjusted weaning weight (205DWT) and average daily gain till weaning (ADG) data of 1277 N'Dama calves were analyzed by nested analysis of variance procedure of SAS to derive half-sib estimate of variance and covariance components which were used to estimate heritability...

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

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

Records of birth (BWT), weaning (WWT) weights, and average daily gain (ADG) of 1184 male and female Friesian calves, which were progeny of 49 sires born from 1990 to 2000 were used. Data were statistically analysed using the computer programme of Harvey. Heritability estimates were 0.241, 0.279,...
