Genetics of Sow Efficiency in the Finnish Landrace and Large White Populations Doctoral Dissertation

  title={Genetics of Sow Efficiency in the Finnish Landrace and Large White Populations Doctoral Dissertation},
  author={Timo V. Serenius},
The objectives of this study were to determine the selection potential (genetic variation) of sow efficiency traits (prolificacy, longevity), to understand the co-responses (genetic correlations) among sow efficiency traits and other economically important traits (performance, carcass quality, and meat quality), and determine the feasibility of developing breeding value estimates for sow efficiency traits. To meet the objectives, five separate studies were carried out. The prolificacy traits… CONTINUE READING
