(Co)variance components and genetic parameters for growth traits in dual purpose crossbred cattle



(Co)variance components and genetic parameters for growth traits in dual purpose crossbred cattle



Revista Cientifica, Facultad de Ciencias Veterinarias, Universidad del Zulia 16(1): 55-61



(Co)variance components for growth traits were estimated for a crossbred cattle population, resulting from a crossbreeding programme of Brahman and Holstein-Friesian breeds, in two dual purpose herds affiliated to the Ganadoble foundation in a tropical environment in Zulia state, Venezuela. Single trait analyses were carried out using restricted maximum likelihood (REML) and the derivative-free algorithm using the MTDFREML computer package.
