Characteristics of reproductive traits and egg traits of crossbred geese with Graylag ancestry
Egg Production Traits and Egg Quality Characteristics in Black and Brown Plumage Color Lines of Japanese Quail
The present study was conducted to determine egg production traits and egg quality characteristics in black and brown lines of Japanese quail. A total of 500 quails comprising 400 females and 100 males obtained from two breeding centers were raised according to the standard procedure for Japanese quail. They were grouped in according to their plumage colours. Age at first egg-laying has been re...متن کامل
Female reproductive trait were studied in four pure breeds (the Finnsheep, Suffolk, Targhee and Minnesota 100), the F1 crosses between Finnsheep rams and females of the other three breeds and F2 and backcross ewes. Precocity of sexual development, defined as the percentage of ewe lambs lambing at 12 months of age, was measured in 709 ewe lambs in 4 years. Lambing and weaning rates were measured...متن کامل
Repeatability and genotypic correlations of reproductive and productive traits of crossbred beef cattle dams.
Beef cattle production requires reproductive efficiency. However, measures of reproductive traits are not usually collected; consequently, correlated traits that could be used as indicators would be useful. We examined associations between measures of reproductive and productive efficiency that could be used as selection indicators. Data from 194 dams of the genetic groups Angus x Nelore, Carac...متن کامل
The study was conducted to determine the effects of turkey (Meleagris gallopavo)egg weight on certain egg traits and hatching performance. A total of 178 turkey eggs comprising of three different egg weight groups below 60 g (G I), 61 to 69 g (G II) and above 70 g (G III) were used for this study. Average egg weight (g), egg length (cm), egg breadth (cm) and egg volume (cm3) values increased wi...متن کامل
Genetic correlation and heritabilities for purebred and crossbred performance in poultry egg production traits.
Genetic correlations between purebred and crossbred performance and purebred and crossbred heritabilities were estimated for egg production traits of laying chickens using a multivariate sire model accounting for additive relationships between sires. Two sire lines, denoted lines 1 and 2, were crossed to one dam line to produce crossbred progeny. Records for egg weight, egg specific gravity, an...متن کامل
