Feed intake and eating behaviour of growing lambs 2nd communication genetic correlations between feed intake and performance traits

Feed intake and eating behaviour of growing lambs 2nd communication genetic correlations between feed intake and performance traits

Archiv Fur Tierzucht: 4, 372-380

In the present study genetic correlations between feed intake, feed efficiency and daily feed intake on one hand and fattening performance, carcass quality and fertility on the other hand were estimated. Data were collected in the test stations "Schondorf"/Thuringia and in "Grub"/Bavaria as well as in stud book farms in Thuringia and Bavaria. Fattening performance and carcass quality were measured on 4,397 and 2,264 lambs, respectively, in Schondorf and 1,292 lambs in Grub.
