Similar to current study, breed of sire effects were significant for 205-day weaning weight and average daily weight gain from birth to weaning (Ozluturk.et al.
Caption: Figure 1--Mean annual genetic values for body weight (BW) in two-character analysis with weight gain from birth to weaning (WG), conformation (WC), finishing precocity (WP), and musculature (WM) at weaning, weight gain after weaning (YG), conformation (YC), finishing precocity (YP), and musculature (YM) after weaning, birth weight (BW), and yearling weight (YW).
They also studied association of these genotypes with average daily weight gain from birth to weaning, six to nine months, and from nine months to yearling age.
The low estimate indicates difficulty in improving maternal ability for average daily weight gain from birth to weaning and reinforces the fact that the early growth is also determined by maternal effects.
