Estimation of genetic parameters and genetic trends for wool production and quality for the Uruguayan Merino



Estimation of genetic parameters and genetic trends for wool production and quality for the Uruguayan Merino



Proceedings of the 8th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil, 13-18 August, 2006: 05-04



Using the data recorded in the National Genetic Evaluation System of the Australian Merino Breed (20,335 animals and 13,497 production records), the genetic parameters were estimate using restricted maximum likelihood methodology, applied to a multiple trait animal model for the five wool traits evaluated routinely: Greasy Fleece Weight (GFW), Clean Fleece Weight (CFW), Fibre Diameter (FD), Staple Length (SL) and Body Weight (BW).
