Heritability estimates of body weight, gain, feed consumption, and feed efficiency, and the genetic, environmental, and phenotypic correlations between these traits in New Hampshire broilers

Heritability estimates of body weight, gain, feed consumption, and feed efficiency, and the genetic, environmental, and phenotypic correlations between these traits in New Hampshire broilers

Diss. Abstr, 17: 483

Heritability estimates computed from the sire component of variance were 0. 56, 0. 67, 0. 85, and 0. 31 for 10-wk. weight, 4-10 wk. gain, feed consumption, and feed efficiency, resp. The correlations between weights at different ages were high and positive, hence weight at any age may be used as a criterion for evaluating growth to 10 wks.
