Table 2 Heritabilities and standard errors estimated with the univariate model

From: Genetic parameters of infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis and its relationship with weight and parasite infestations in Australian tropical Bos taurus cattle

Trait1 Heritability Standard error
IBK before weaning 0.17* 0.03
IBK after weaning 0.19* 0.06
TKC 0.20 0.12
EPG 0.41 0.09
Birth weight 0.60 0.09
Weaning weight 0.47 0.09
Yearling weight 0.38 0.09
Final weight 0.35 0.10
  1. 1IBK = infectious bovine keratoconjuctivitis incidence; TKC = log10 (mean tick count + 1); EPG = cube-root mean worm egg counts, weaning weight at 6 months of age, yearling weight at 12 months of age and final weight at 18 months of age; *heritability estimate based on liability scale for binomial distribution.
