Estimates of genetic parameters for yearling body weight and fleece traits in the South African Dohne Merino population



Estimates of genetic parameters for yearling body weight and fleece traits in the South African Dohne Merino population



Proceedings of the 8th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil, 13-18 August, 2006: 05-20



Genetic (co)variances for body weight (BW), clean fleece weight (CFW) and mean fiber diameter (MFD) at 12 to 14 months of age were estimated using ASREML procedures in the South African Dohne Merino population. The data, after editing, comprised of 107389 records, the progeny of 1530 sires and 45178 dams, collected between 1992 and 2004.
