|Title:||Selection strategies for the genetic improvement of reproductive performance in sheep||Contributor(s):||Brien, F D (author); Hinch, Geoffrey (author) ; Van Der Werf, Julius H (author) ; Brown, Daniel (author); Swan, Andrew (author)||Publication Date:||2011||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/10100||Abstract:||Selection strategies for the genetic improvement of reproductive performance of sheep in Australia are discussed in the context of current and emerging industry practice. The predicted rates of gain in reproductive rate are compared with varying amounts of pedigree and performance records of relatives. The paper also considers the merits of exploiting indirect as well as direct selection, including selection on the component traits of reproductive rate.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||19th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Perth, Australia, 19th - 21st July, 2011||Conference Details:||19th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Perth, Australia, 19th - 21st July, 2011||Source of Publication:||Breeding Objectives: A New Paradigm, p. 151-158||Publisher:||AAABG: Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics||Place of Publication:||Perth, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/162660639
