Estimated breeding values for number born alive in pigs - do they really work?



Estimated breeding values for number born alive in pigs - do they really work?



Manipulating pig production X Proceedings of the Tenth Biennial Conference of the Australasian Pig Science Association APSA, held in Christchurch, New Zealand, 27th to 30th November, 2005: 102



The aim of this paper was to study whether the estimated breeding values (EBVs) for number born alive (NBA) of dams at the purebreed level can predict the performance of crossbred daughters at the commercial level. In addition, the ability of EBVs and phenotypic performance of dams to predict NBA was compared. Performance records (n=10 316) from 2552 crossbred (F1) sows at two commercial piggeries were collected between June 1995 and December 2004 for the trait NBA.
