Abstract

In this study 28,643 weight records taken from birth to 660 days of age from 6,471 animals of the Tabapuã zebu breed were used to estimate (co)variance components and genetic parameters using a random regression model. The data were analyzed with the DFREML program applying the Restricted Maximum...

Abstract

We compared different Bayesian models to handle censored data for genetic parameters estimation of age at first calving (AFC) in Brazilian Brahman cattle. Data from females with AFC above 1825 days of age were assumed to have failed to calve and were considered as censored records. Data including...
