  •  QTL Experiment in Brief
    Animals:A Braham x Angus sire was mated to Hereford, Angus, MARC III, and F1 cows from the Germplasm Evaluation Project to produce 259 offspring in 1995, and mated to MARC III cows in 1996 to produce 361 offspring(620 offspring total.)
     Breeds associated:
    Design:Offspring were evaluated for birth weight, carcass composition and meat quality traits.
    Analysis:Data were analysed with a model that included year of birth, sex, dam line, days on feed as a covariate and the conditional probability of inheriting the Brahman allele from the sire at each cM of the chromosome.
