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 ...
Genome-wide association study for feed efficiency in collective cage-raised rabbits under full and restricted feeding
(Animal Genetics, 2020-07-22) Genètica i Millora Animal
Feed efficiency (FE) is one of the most economically and environmentally relevant traits in the animal production sector. The objective of this study was to gain knowledge about the genetic control of ...
