Prediction of genetic merit for missing traits is possible by combining available indicator traits. Indicator traits were combined using genetic correlations obtained from multiple regression equations of estimated genetic correlations among available indicator traits on variables explaining production circumstances and trait definitions. This prediction of missing traits was closer to actual breeding values than breeding values for any of the indicator traits. This was verified by evaluating… CONTINUE READING
