Use of group records of feed intake to select for feed efficiency in rabbit
(Journal of Animal Breeding and Genetics, 2019-04-24) Genètica i Millora Animal
Models for genetic evaluation of feed efficiency (FE) for animals housed in groups when they are either fed ad libitum (F) or on restricted (R) feeding were implemented. Definitions of FE on F included ...
Genetic parameters of sow feed efficiency during lactation and its underlying traits in a Duroc population
(animal, 2019-11-25) Genètica i Millora Animal
As a result of the genetic selection for prolificacy and the improvements in the environment and farms management, litter size has increased in the last few years so that energy requirements of the ...
Indirect genetic effects on the relationships between production and feeding behaviour traits in growing Duroc pigs
(Animal, 2019-10-01) Genètica i Millora Animal
Performance and feeding behaviour traits in growing pigs could be affected by social interaction effects when animals are raised in group. So, properly knowing the genetic correlations between direct ...
