Derivation of economic weights to selection for profit


Derivation of economic weights to selection for profit



XI Jornadas sobre Produccion Animal, Zaragoza, Spain, 11-12 Mayo, 2005 Volumenes I and II: 129-131



The general aim for animal breeding strategies is obtain future generations that will produce more efficiently under future production circumstances. Thus, genetic improvement programs should maximize profitability, taking into account socio-economic and productive environments. In this work, a review of the different methods to estimate economic weights (the value per unit improvement in a trait) is present.
