Body weight heritability and relationship with various fur characters in arctic foxes



Body weight heritability and relationship with various fur characters in arctic foxes



Krolikovodstvo i Zverovodstvo (6): 13-14



Data were obtained in 1971-1974 on 92, 128, 117 and 247 progeny of large sires weighing >7.5 kg and large dams weighing >6.8 kg. For 1971, 1973 and 1974 resp., body weight at cropping averaged 5.85, 5.9 and 6.2 kg (h2s = 0.40, 0.43 and 0.22 resp.). In 1972, when the farm was unable to maintain an adequate food ration, body weight of progeny of large parents averaged only 5.5 kg (v 5.6 kg for the farm average) and a negative h2 was obtained.
