Breeding Value Prediction for Production Traits in Layers Using High-density SNP MarkersAnimal Industry Report
Extension NumberASL R2619
Summary and ImplicationsAccuracy of breeding values estimated by different methods using pedigree and high-density SNP genotypes in predicting the next generation in a commercial layer breeding line was evaluated. Early and late selection was considered. Use of markers increased accuracies up to two-fold for early selection and by up to 88% for late selection.
