Heterogeneous variances by sex and sire breed in 200- and 365-day weights of calves from Hereford and Angus dams



Heterogeneous variances by sex and sire breed in 200- and 365-day weights of calves from Hereford and Angus dams



Proceedings, 5th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada, 7-12 August, 1994 Volume 17 Genetics and breeding of dairy and beef cattle, swine and horses: 202-205



Data on weaning weight and yearling weight of about 4000 calves from matings of about 670 Charolais, Limousin, Simmental, German Yellow, Angus, Hereford and Pinzgauer bulls with American Angus and Hereford dams were analysed to investigate the heterogeneity of variances due to sire breed.
