A comparison of breeding value predictors for longevity using a linear model and survival analysis.

Abstract

A comparison was made among breeding values of sires for longevity that were obtained by different methods: phenotypic averages of daughters using only uncensored records, BLUP using only uncensored records, survival analysis using only uncensored records, and survival analysis using both censored and uncensored records. Two data files were used: one… (More)
