|Title:||Accounting for selective slaughter over time when estimating breeding values for carcase traits?: A simulation study||Contributor(s):||Worsnop, Christopher David (author); Johnston, David (author); Graser, Hans Ulrich (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4108||Abstract:||Progeny test data used to estimate breeding values (EBVs) of sires for carcase traits may come from measurements taken on animals that have been slaughtered over time based on individual animal market suitability. Confounding between genetic effects and age can result. However, in the current study appropriate adjustment for growth rate resulted in highly accurate sire EBVs for both the slaughtering criteria, namely liveweight, and for a second trait (e.g. a carcase trait) regardless of the genetic correlation between the two traits.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Genetic Improvement - Making it Happen, University of New England, Armidale, NSW, Australia, September 23 - September 26 2007||Conference Details:||Genetic Improvement - Making it Happen, University of New England, Armidale, NSW, Australia, September 23 - September 26 2007||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, p. 364-367||Publisher:||AAABG: Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics||Place of Publication:||Armidale, NSW, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||060412 Quantitative Genetics (incl Disease and Trait Mapping Genetics)||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/35062558?selectedversion=NBD42373479
