PC-programs for estimating economic weights in cattle

Zivocisna Vyroba 41(3): 97-101
PC-programs for estimating economic weights in cattle
Brief descriptions are given of 2 programs. Program EW calculates economic weights for up to 13 traits in dual-purpose or dairy cattle. For a given trait, up to 7 models can be chosen, reflecting different management methods, quota systems, and options in the definition of traits and breeding goals.
