|Title:||Potential Quantitative Genetic Indicators of Pig Temperament||Contributor(s):||Crump, RE (author); Hansson, A (author); Graser, HU (author); Sokolinski, R (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/947||Abstract:||Two temperament traits, the standard deviation of 50 weights recorded in a 20 second period (SDWT) and flight time over a 1m distance on exiting the weigh scales (FT), were recorded in a commercial nucleus population. After editing, 4,879 SDWT records (mean=0.85 kg, CV=50%) and 3,567 FT records (mean=2.03 seconds, CV=63%) remained. Individual animal model residual maximum likelihood analyses were performed to ascertain the variance parameters of these traits. Both SDWT and FT were heritable ('h'2 = 0.10 and 'h'2 = 0.20, respectively), and there was a significant common litter of birth effect for SDWT ('c'2 = 0.04).||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||16th Biennial Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics (AAABG), Noosa Lakes, Queensland, 25-28 September, 2005||Conference Details:||16th Biennial Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics (AAABG), Noosa Lakes, Queensland, 25-28 September, 2005||Source of Publication:||Application of New Genetic Technologies to Animal Breeding: Proceedings of the 16th Biennial Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics (AAABG), p. 91-94||Publisher:||CSIRO Publishing||Place of Publication:||Collingwood, Victoria||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.publish.csiro.au/nid/18/pid/5121.htm
