Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed for litter size born alive and at 21 d in Duroc, Landrace, and Large White sows raised in southern Brazil. Variance and covariance components were estimated for first, second, and third parities, and for different sets of parities using DFREML under animal models with direct and maternal genetic effects.(More)
This study combines experimental and numerical approaches to investigate the microstructure and mechanical behaviour of non-miscible plasticised starch/zein blends. The concept of Representative Elementary Size (RES) is used to rank the effect of five different plasticisers (cholinium acetate, glycerol, butyl methyl imidazolium chloride, glycerol-choline(More)
