Abstract

Estimates of genetic parameters(heritability, repeatability, and genetic correlation) of some economically important traits in 8 local animal breeds in China are given in tnis paper. The 8 breeds are Tai Hu Pig, Rong Chang Pig, Nei Jiang Pig, Jin Hua Pig, Ning Xiang Pig, Fu Ling Buffalo, Tan Goat, and Zhong Wei Goat. The methods used in the estimation are mainly Sib Analysis within Block proposed by Zhilian Sheng and Sib Analysis in Mixed Families proposed by Changhsin Wu. These estimates provide a scientific basis for the preservation,utilization, and improvement of these breeds
