a Change in EBV between a non-challenging environmental condition (\(p\) = 0) and an extremely challenging condition (\(p\) = 1) expressed in terms of genetic standard deviation. Three groups were identified according to the pattern of reaction to environmental challenging conditions and are indicated with different colors on the histogram (red: animals with EBV that decrease for higher values of \(p\); blue: animals with EBV that tend to remain approximately constant for higher values of \(p\), within − 1 and + 1 genetic standard deviations; green: animals with EBV that increase for higher values of \(p\)). Twenty animals were randomly sampled from each group, and panels (bd) show the reaction norms for daily feed intake (DFI) for each of the three groups
