|Title:||Genetic Correlations between Purebred and Crossbred Performance of Poll Dorset Sheep||Contributor(s):||Brown, Daniel (author); Van Der Werf, Julius H (author)||Publication Date:||2015||Open Access:||Yes||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/19011||Open Access Link:||http://www.aaabg.org/aaabghome/AAABG21papers/Brown21177.pdf||Abstract:||The genetic correlation between purebred and crossbred performance has implications for the utility of Australian Sheep Breeding Values (ASBVs) and the accuracy of genomic predications. The aim of this study was to estimate the genetic correlations between purebred and crossbred performance for terminal sire breeds. The genetic correlations estimated between purebred and crossbred progeny performance were all very high ranging from 0.44 to 1.00 and not significantly different from one for the weight and carcase traits examined in this study. These result support the use of the LAMBPLAN across breed ASBVs produced from animals with variable breed composition and also the use of crossbred animals in the genomic reference populations.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||21st Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Lorne, Australia, 28th - 30th September, 2015||Conference Details:||21st Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Lorne, Australia, 28th - 30th September, 2015||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the Twenty-first Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, p. 177-180||Publisher:||AAABG: Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics||Place of Publication:||Bundoora, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.aaabg.org/aaabghome/proceedings21.php||Series Name:||Proceedings of the AAABG ...
