Estimation of Genetic Parameters for Body Weights and Body Measurements of Korean Cattle

한우의 체중과 체척치에 대한 유전모수의 추정

  • Published : 2002.04.30

Abstract

This study was conducted to estimate heritabilities and genetic and phenotypic correlations among body weight and 10 different body measurements on the basis of the data from Korean cows at Korean Cattle Improvement Areas from 1979 to 1995. Results obtained are as follows. 1. Heritabilities of body weights at birth, weaning, 12 months and 27 months of age estimated were 0.208${\pm}$0.038, 0.457${\pm}$0.073, 0.476${\pm}$0.082 and 0.227${\pm}$0.040, respectively. Heritabilities of body measurements at 12 and 27 months of age estimated were 0.326 and 0.242 for withers height, 0.486 and 0.110 for body length and 0.462 and 0.170 for chest girth2. Genetic and phenotypic correlations among body weight and ten body measurements at 12 months of age were positive ranging from 0.223 to 0.999. Genetic and phenotypic correlations among body weight and ten body measurements at 27 months of age were positive ranging from 0.290 to 0.883.
