Genetic parameters for growth and carcass traits of Japanese Black (Wagyu) cattle



Genetic parameters for growth and carcass traits of Japanese Black (Wagyu) cattle



Animal Science 71(1): 59-64



Restricted maximum likelihood analyses fitting an animal model were conducted to estimate genetic parameters with a pooled-data set of performance tests (growth traits and food intake) on 661 bulls and progeny tests (growth traits and carcass traits) on 535 steers from Japan. Records had been collected for >25 years.
