|Title:||A Genetic Analysis of Sow Longevity||Contributor(s):||Crump, RE (author)||Publication Date:||2001||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1078||Abstract:||Sow longevity, measured in terms of final parity attained, was analysed by a variety of methods,including survival analysis, linear model and generalised linear mixed model approaches. Heritability estimates ranging from 0.11 to 0.21 were obtained from the different analyses. Non-survival analysis methods did not perform well as alternatives to survival analysis. Evidence of low, unfavourable genetic correlations with average daily gain and ultrasonic backfat depth was found.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||14th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Queenstown, New Zealand, 30th July - 2nd August, 2001||Conference Details:||14th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Queenstown, New Zealand, 30th July - 2nd August, 2001||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 14th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics: Biotechnology, p. 223-226||Publisher:||AAABG: Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics||Place of Publication:||Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.aaabg.org/
