Estimates of genetic correlations between testicular measurements and female reproductive traits in cattle.
Data from 528 male and 645 female progeny of 63 sires were used to estimate genetic correlations between female and male reproductive traits. Data were from two Hereford herds involved in a long-termExpand

The National Pork Producers Council Maternal Line National Genetic Evaluation Program: a comparison of six maternal genetic lines for female productivity measures over four parities.
Litter (n = 8,424) and female performance records were collected in two breed-to-wean production units in order to evaluate genetic line differences for sow longevity and maternal performance overExpand

Effects of cytoplasmic inheritance on production traits of dairy cattle.
Pedigrees of 4461 cows were traced to the original female in a maternal line. Cytoplasmic origin was defined as the first female in the maternal lineage. There were 102 cytoplasmic lines. Most cowsExpand

Results from nine generations of selection for increased litter size in swine.
Direct selection for increased litter size was done for nine generations. The select line consisted of approximately 15 sires and 60 dams per generation, and selection was based on estimated breedingExpand

Evaluation of procedures to predict fat-free lean in swine carcasses.
The objectives were to develop equations for predicting fat-free lean in swine carcasses and to estimate the prediction bias that was due to genetic group, sex, and dietary lysine level. Barrows andExpand
