|Title:||Female, Male and Genomic Measures for Use in Genetic Selection to Improve Lifetime Weaning Rate of Brahman Cattle||Contributor(s):||Barwick, Stephen (author); Johnston, David (author); Holroyd, R G (author); Walkley, J R W (author); Burrow, H M (author)||Publication Date:||2013||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/14339||Abstract:||Female and male measures with potential to be practical, early-in-life genetic indicators of female reproduction in Brahmans were chosen from earlier reports and compared, along with genomic measures, for multi-trait use to improve Brahman lifetime annual weaning rate ('LAWR'). Results suggested substantial genetic gains in 'LAWR' may be possible in 10 years using these measures, but need confirming in other data. Female hip height and coat score and male preputial eversion and liveweight were measures that could warrant wider recording for 'LAWR' improvement. Recording of pregnancy test outcomes from matings 1 and 2 should also be encouraged. A genomic EBV in combination with other measures added to the gain in 'LAWR', but needed an accuracy approaching 60% to be the most important contributor to gains in the combinations of measures studied.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||20th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics: Translating Science into Action, Napier, New Zealand, 20th - 23rd October, 2013||Conference Details:||20th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics: Translating Science into Action, Napier, New Zealand, 20th - 23rd October, 2013||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the Twentieth Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, p. 307-310||Publisher:||AAABG: Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics||Place of Publication:||Palmerston North, New Zealand||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||830301 Beef Cattle||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.aaabg.org/aaabghome/proceedings20.php||Series Name:||Proceedings of the AAABG ...
