The Effects of Phenotypic and BLUP selection methods in livestock populations (swine) in tropical developing countries .

ABSTRACTA computer simulation experiment was conducted to evaluate the cumulative response to best linear unbiased prediction (BLUP) and phenotypic selection for low and high heritability traits and in previously Selected, Unselected and Synthetic populations, typical of exotic and indigenous populations and their crossbreds used in tropical pig production. The QMSim simulation software was used to simulate the various population structures and the dataset was generated for traits with herita...
