Table 2 Estimated genetic correlations between dam hair shedding and calf weaning weight

From: Development of a genetic evaluation for hair shedding in American Angus cattle to improve thermotolerance

  Weaning weight (direct) Weaning weight (maternal)
All available data
 Hair shedding − 0.03 (0.055) − 0.19 (0.066)
 Weaning weight (direct)   − 0.43 (0.050)
Grazing toxic fescue
 Hair shedding 0.01 (0.080) − 0.25 (0.104)
 Weaning weight (direct)   − 0.63 (0.071)
Not grazing toxic fescue
 Hair shedding 0.10 (0.091) − 0.28 (0.097)
 Weaning weight (direct)   − 0.29 (0.097)
  1. Genetic correlation estimates between hair shedding, the direct effect of weaning weight, and the maternal effect of weaning weight vary across toxic fescue grazing statuses with approximated standard errors in parentheses
