Abstract:Using paternal half-sib (PHS) analysis, coefficients of genetic and phenotypic correlations be- tween body weights of Yankasa lambs at birth, weaning (three months), six months, nine months and one year of age were estimate. The highest genetic correlation coefficient of 0.33 was obtained between birth and yearling weight. Six- month weight had very low and negative genetic correlation with yearling weight (-0.04). Phenotypic correlation coefficients for the various body weights pairs were positive and mostly …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
