Genetic diversity of litter size traits between parities in rabbits



Genetic diversity of litter size traits between parities in rabbits



Journal of Applied Rabbit Research 15: 198-205



Data from 2 selection experiments (2 lines) for litter size at weaning over 8 and 11 generations, involving 2084 and 2624 litters resp., were analysed using a univariate pseudoexpectation approach to estimate variance components, fixed effects (reproductive state of the dam and year-season effects) and genetic and environmental trends. Traits analysed were litter size at birth, at weaning (28 days) and at 77 days of age.
