Estimation of crossbreeding parameters in rotational crossing between German Landrace and Pietrain


Archiv fur Tierzucht 36(3-4): 359-369
Estimation of crossbreeding parameters in rotational crossing between German Landrace and Pietrain
Crossbreeding parameters for meat production traits were determined by multiple regression analysis, based on Dickerson's method (Animal Breeding Abstracts (1969) 37, 191-202), using data on 662 pigs from an experiment on rotational crossing between the 2 breeds. Three models were employed. The 1st ignored relationships among animals, the 2nd incorporated sires, dams and their relationships, and the 3rd incorporated all relationships among animals.
