Genetic variation of residual feed consumption in a selected Finnish egg-layer population.

Abstract

The purpose of the study was to estimate the heritability of residual feed consumption (RFC) and the genetic correlations between RFC and economically important traits. The genetic progress after four generations of selection for RFC and the changes in economically important traits were also investigated. A selection experiment for RFC was carried out from… (More)
