The aim of this study was to obtain genetic parameters for resistance to ticks, gastrointestinal nematodes and Eimeria spp. in Nellore cattle using random regression models through Bayesian inference. Animals were classified as resistant or susceptible for each parasite. Heritability estimates ranged from low to high magnitude (0.07 to 0.30 for resistance to ticks, 0.02 to 0.34 for resistance to gastrointestinal nematodes, and from 0.04 to 0.39 for resistance Eimeria spp.) In general, the… Expand
