Divergent selection for intramuscular fat content in rabbits. I. Direct response to selection.


The aim of this study was to evaluate the selection response on intramuscular fat (IMF) content of LM after 3 generations of divergent selection. Heritability and genetic means for IMF content were also analyzed. Selection was based on the phenotypic value of IMF content measured in 2 full sibs of the first parity. Selection pressure on females was 13% in… (More)
