Genetic associations between feed efficiency measured in a performance test station and performance of growing cattle in commercial beef herds.

Abstract

Interest in selection for improved feed efficiency is increasing, but before any steps are taken toward selecting for feed efficiency, correlations with other economically important traits must first be quantified. The objective of this study was to quantify the genetic associations between feed efficiency measured during performance testing and linear type… (More)
