Direct and correlated responses to selection for improved food efficiency



Direct and correlated responses to selection for improved food efficiency



Poultry genetics and breeding Proceedings of the 18th Poultry Science Symposium, in association with the 25th British Poultry Breeders Round Table, 1983: 97-112



A review of work on fowls. Of the relatively few published reports of selection for food conversion efficiency in broiler fowls, all have used the ratio of food consumption:weight gain (g/g), measured over an age-constant period, as the selection trait.
