Genetic parameters for growth traits of a Brazilian Bos taurus x Bos indicus beef composite

G. B. Mourão, Ferraz, J. B. S., Eler, J. P., Balieiro, J. C. C., Bueno, R. S., Mattos, E. C., and Figueiredo, L. G. G., Genetic parameters for growth traits of a Brazilian Bos taurus x Bos indicus beef composite, vol. 6, pp. 1190-1200, 2007.

The genetic analysis of composite data is very complicated, mainly because it is necessary to adjust data to the effects of heterosis and breed complementarity, and because there is usually considerable confounding of these data with several other effects, such as contemporary group effects, breed composition of the animal and maternal breed composition, among others.
