|Title:||The National Pig Improvement Program (NPIP) - update||Contributor(s):||Crump, Ronald E (author); Hermesch, Susanne (author)||Publication Date:||2004||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/10536||Abstract:||The National Pig Improvement Program (NPIP) is an across-herd genetic evaluation system for pigs in Australia. Michael Macbeth from the Queensland Department of Primary Industries initiated the NPIP in 1995 with technical support from the Animal Genetics and Breeding Unit (AGBU). Since 2001, the NPIP has been the responsibility of AGBU and the analytical system is now based on the PIGBLUP genetic evaluation system. The NPIP web site at http://npip.une.edu.au provides general information about the NPIP along with estimated breeding values (EBVs) for AI boars, genetic trends, distributions of EBVs for young animals and lists of the top young animals. Detailed information about the NPIP was provided at the last workshop (Crump and Hermesch, 2003) and only a brief overview is provided here.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Pig Genetics Workshop, Armidale, Australia, 17th - 18th November, 2004||Source of Publication:||Pig Genetics Workshop Notes: November 17-18, 2004, p. 13-20||Publisher:||Animal Genetics and Breeding Unit, University of New England||Place of Publication:||Armidale, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||HERDC Category Description:||E2 Non-Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://agbu.une.edu.au/pig_genetics/pdf/2004/Paper_3_RC_npip_2004.pdf
