Data were collected from 381 birds of Norfa pullets produced by pedigreed mating between 30 sires and 90 dams. These data were utilized to construct and evaluate multisource multitrait selection indices and sub-indices depending on more than one source of information for each trait.The studied traits were antibody titers to SRBCs antigen (Ab), body weight… CONTINUE READING
