Estimation of genetic and maternal effects in crossbred cattle of Angus, Charolais and Hereford parentage. II. Postweaning growth, ribeye area and fat cover



Estimation of genetic and maternal effects in crossbred cattle of Angus, Charolais and Hereford parentage. II. Postweaning growth, ribeye area and fat cover



Journal of Animal Science 50(2): 235-241



Linear functions of means of breed combinations were used to estimate the genetic and maternal effects of the Aberdeen-Angus (AA), Charolais and Hereford breeds. Data from 637 animals were used to estimate an additive effect for each breed, individual and maternal heterosis for each 2-breed combination, and maternal and grandmaternal effects for each breed.
