Effect of stage of growth on genetic parameters of feed intake in swine



Effect of stage of growth on genetic parameters of feed intake in swine



Proceedings, 5th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada, 7-12 August 1994 Volume 19 Selection and quantitative genetics; growth; reproduction; lactation; fish; fiber; meat: 185-188



Test station data on 766 and 466 boars from 2 dam lines were analysed by derivative-free Restricted Maximum Likelihood procedures. Traits recorded on individual animals tested from 100 to 170 days of age were average daily gain, backfat thickness, daily feed intake (DFI) and feed conversion. DFI was recorded at weeks 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 on test.
