Investigations on the possibility of reindeer breeding. II

, : Investigations on the possibility of reindeer breeding. II. Journal of the Scientific Agricultural Society of Finland 44(4): 234-248

For 76 reindeer calves obtained from 6 sires and 120 dams, birth weight of males and females resp. averaged 6.00 and 5.72 kg, weight gain during the 1st summer (the season in which almost all growth occurs) 39.46 and 34.78 kg, and weight gain during the 2nd summer 24.88 and 17.45 kg. Eight body measurements and several miscellaneous measurements for both breeds are tabulated for 2 successive springs. The h2s of all measurements are tabulated, with and without correction for sex.
