Estimation of genetic parameters of egg production traits of laying hens by restricted maximum likelihood applied to a multiple-trait reduced animal model


Genetics, Selection, Evolution 24(6): 539-552
Estimation of genetic parameters of egg production traits of laying hens by restricted maximum likelihood applied to a multiple-trait reduced animal model
Variance components were estimated for egg production traits (number of eggs produced between 19 and 26, 26 and 38 and 26 and 54 wk of age), egg characters (av. egg weight at 2 ages and egg density) and body weight at 40 wk of age of 2 strains of fowls, by univariate and multivariate Restricted Max. Likelihood (REML) applied to a reduced animal model (RAM).
