Heritabilities of and genetic and phenotypic correlations among some economically important traits of beef cattle



Heritabilities of and genetic and phenotypic correlations among some economically important traits of beef cattle



Journal of Animal Science 36(4): 635-639



Data from the Hawaii Beef Cattle Improvement Association records collected from 1965 to 1971 were used to estimate h2s and genetic and phenotypic correlations involving weaning weight/day of age, weaning conformation score, yearling weight/day of age, av. daily gain from weaning to yearling age, and yearling conformation score.All parameters were estimated on a within-sex and within-breed basis and were subsequently pooled across sexes within breeds and lastly across sexes and breeds.
