Extract

The introduction of electronic feeders has allowed accurate measures of individual feed intake in a group housing system, similar to that in the production environment. These feeders also provide other feeding pattern information, such as how many meals are taken each day and how big they are, which could be of use to further improve the accuracy of selection for feed conversion ratio and growth traits. The main aims of this study were to predict the increase in genetic gain achieved by including feed intake and feeding pattern traits as selection criteria.
