Table 4 Insemination success rate and interval between insemination and calving for non-carrier × non-carrier matings (HH × HH), non-carrier × carrier (HH × Hh), and carrier × carrier (Hh × Hh) matings for the AA14H3 and SI16H5 haplotypes and a calf registration window of 7, 14, and 21 days

From: Analysis of a large dataset reveals haplotypes carrying putatively recessive lethal and semi-lethal alleles with pleiotropic effects on economically important traits in beef cattle
