Model selection and genetic parameter estimation for performance traits, body measurement traits and leg score traits in a closed population of Duroc pigs



Model selection and genetic parameter estimation for performance traits, body measurement traits and leg score traits in a closed population of Duroc pigs



Animal Science Journal 72(2): 97-106



During the course of developing a strain of Duroc pigs, 1381 pigs were used to determine the growth rate from birth to the day at 30 kg, the growth rate during the period from 30 to 90 kg of body weight, the back fat depth, the eye muscle area and leg scores when the body weight was approximately 90 kg. Additionally, body size was measured at 90 kg body weight. The pigs were allowed free access to the diet.
