Assessing trait economic impacts at the level of the individual animals considered in selection


Assessing trait economic impacts at the level of the individual animals considered in selection



50 years of DNA: Proceedings of the Fifteenth Conference, Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Melbourne, Australia, 7-11 July 2003: 347-350



This paper outlines a method for assessing trait economic impacts, at the level of the individual animals considered in selection, for traits where the economic value changes across the range of the trait. Results are compared with those from linear methods for price patterns that are common for traits, such as beef carcase fat depth, weight and marbling score, which affect market acceptability and preference.
