Genetic improvement of Japanese Black cattle based on predicted breeding values



Genetic improvement of Japanese Black cattle based on predicted breeding values



Science Reports of Faculty of Agriculture, Kobe University 26: 49-54



Genetic relationships among carcass traits and between reproductive or growth traits and carcass traits were estimated for Japanese Black using the REML procedure. Among carcass traits a low but favourable genetic correlation (-0.04) was obtained between 2 carcass traits relating to fat deposition; beef marbling score and subcutaneous fat thickness, suggesting that these traits could be improved simultaneously.
