A study of polymorphic systems in Nelore cattle (Bos taurus indicus L.) associated with beef production. II Transferrins, weights and weight gain of animals submitted for performance testing and scrotum circumference



A study of polymorphic systems in Nelore cattle (Bos taurus indicus L.) associated with beef production. II Transferrins, weights and weight gain of animals submitted for performance testing and scrotum circumference



Boletim de Industria Animal 54(1): 13-20



A sample of 125 males from the Sertaozinho Experimental Station (SP), submitted for performance testing, was used to observe the Castle-Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium for transferrin polymorphism. Another objective was to verify possible relationships with growth traits. Statistical analysis was performed by least-squares for unbalanced subclass numbers and chi superscript 2 analysis was used to test for Castle-Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.
