Restricted selection index for growth traits in sheep



Restricted selection index for growth traits in sheep



Dirasat 15(11): 162-168



28 177, 30 905 and 32 502 records of birth, 50-day and 100-day weights resp. of Suffolk and 14 481, 16 814 and 17 893 records of Dorset sheep recorded in 1976-1983 in the Canadian Records of Performance for Sheep were analysed by the Diagonal Minimum Norm Quadratic Unbiased Estimators (MINQUE-D) procedure.
