Abstract

Genetic correlations (rg) of body length (BL) with production and reproduction traits were estimated in purebred Duroc (DU), Large White (LW) and Landrace (LR) pigs using restricted maximum likelihood methodology applied to bivariate mixed animal models. A repeatability animal model was used for reproduction traits. The heritability estimates for BL were 0.360.07, 0.340.05 and 0.410.05 in the DU, LW and
