A study on the inheritance of hair colour in Dahe pigs



A study on the inheritance of hair colour in Dahe pigs



Chinese Journal of Animal Science (1): 10-12



Dahe pigs are black or various shades of brown. It is suggested that colour in the breed is controlled by 2 loci: B (black) and A (brown). Under this scheme of inheritance, pigs of genotypes aaB- and A-bb are black and brown resp. Pigs carrying a dominant gene at both loci are black-brown or dark brown. Pigs that are homozygous recessive at both loci are light bright brown. 97 F1 piglets from matings of a black with brown were all dark brown.
