Estimated breeding values of sires predict average progeny performance



Estimated breeding values of sires predict average progeny performance



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: 100



The aim of this study was to analyse whether across-herd estimated breeding values (EBVs) of sires in the National Pig Improvement Program (NPIP) could predict half of the difference in progeny performance for average daily gain (ADG) and back fat (BF). Across-herd EBVs were available for boars from seven Large White herds participating in the NPIP that were subsequently used as sires in the Gatton Large White herd.
