Genetic parameter estimates for backfat thickness at three different sites and growth rate in swine


, : Genetic parameter estimates for backfat thickness at three different sites and growth rate in swine. Asian Australasian Journal of Animal Sciences 17(3): 305-308

The purpose of this study was to estimate the genetic parameters for backfat thickness at shoulder, mid back and loin and days to 90 kg using a derivative-free REML procedure. Data were collected from 6146 boars and gilts of purebred Duroc, Landrace and Large White performance tested at breeding farms of National Agricultural Cooperatives Federation in Korea Republic from 1998 to 2001.

Opiate-dependent subjects receiving methadone substitution. The usefulness of beta-hexosaminidase (uHex) and gamma-glutamyltransferase (uGGT) activity in urine as markers of chronic alcohol abuse was examined in male methadone programme participants. The group consisted of 24 non-abusing and 21 alcohol-abu...
