Abstract A mixed effects model version of a common swine growth function is introduced. This version, in which the mature BW of each pig is considered random, accounts for increasing variation with age and serial correlations across age that are common in serial BW growth data sets, thereby providing a much better fit and significantly smaller parameter SE. The inclusion of random effects also reduces the impact of selective sampling, which occurs when fast-growing pigs are removed for… CONTINUE READING
