A note on heritability of growth of Sahiwal heifers to bulling age and its correlation with milk yield



A note on heritability of growth of Sahiwal heifers to bulling age and its correlation with milk yield



East African Agricultural and Forestry Journal 52(2): 127-129



Data on heifers born in the Kenyan National Sahiwal Stud herd were analysed. The hsuperscript 2 was 0.17+or-0.06 for birth weight, 0.25+or-0.06 for absolute growth rate to 27 months of age, 0.03+or-0.04 for relative growth rate to 27 months, and 0.33+or-0.07 for 27-month body weight.
