Multivariate restricted maximum likelihood estimates of genetic and phenotypic parameters of lifetime performance traits for Murrah buffalo



Multivariate restricted maximum likelihood estimates of genetic and phenotypic parameters of lifetime performance traits for Murrah buffalo



Proceedings of the 6th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production, Armidale, NSW, Australia, 11-16 January, 1998 Volume 24: Sheep and goats fibre; sheep and goats meat and milk; poultry; horses; buffaloes: 463-466



Data on 2107 Murrah buffaloes maintained at 4 military farms and 3 Uttar Pradesh State Government farms between 1961 and 1988 were analysed. Heritability of first-lactation milk yield was 0.23 and the range of heritability estimates for lifetime performance traits were 0.05 to 0.19 with the lowest for lifetime number of services/conception and the highest for milk yield/day of herd life. Genetic and phenotypic correlations among lifetime performance traits ranged from -0.31 to 0.93.
