Estimation of genetic parameters for performance traits in pigs by Gibbs Sampling and restricted maximum likelihood



Estimation of genetic parameters for performance traits in pigs by Gibbs Sampling and restricted maximum likelihood



Proceedings of the 8th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil, 13-18 August, 2006: 06-31



Records of 38,865 Large White pigs were used to estimate the (co)variance components and genetic parameters for age at 100 Kg live weight (A100) and backfat tickness (BF) traits, using Restricted Maximum Likelihood (REML) by MTDFREML and Gibbs Sampling (GS) by MTGSAM. The estimates of the (co)variance components and genetic parameters for A100 and BF obtained by GS and REML were general, similar in both single and multiple trait analyses.
