Genetic parameters for sex-specific traits in beef cattle: mature weight of cows and carcass traits of steers



Genetic parameters for sex-specific traits in beef cattle: mature weight of cows and carcass traits of steers



Proceedings of the 7th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production, Montpellier, France, August, 2002 Session 11: 0-3



Data from the first four cycles of the Germplasm Evaluation Programme (USMARC) were used to estimate genetic relationships between female mature weights (n=37710) and carcass traits of their steer paternal half-sibs (n=4032). Data were analysed by REML. It was shown that in general, estimates of genetic correlations between mature weight (MW) and carcass composition or meat quality traits were relatively low.
