The following adjustment factors come from work done originally at Texas A&M - San Angelo combined with work on adjustment factors for sheep. Specifically they were obtained from the Boer Goat Improvement Network, B-GIN Fact Sheet, 2004 EPD Report.
Multiplicative factors used to adjust birth
and weaning weights for non-genetic effects:
Birth - Rearing
|Age of Dam||1||1.27||1.10|
Actual birth weights and age-adjusted (to 90 days) weaning weights are multiplied by the factor shown to correct for non-genetic effects of kid sex, type of birth (for birth weight) or birth and rearing (for weaning weight), and age of the dam.
Type of birth - type of rearing. Birth weights were adjusted only for type of birth.
Multiplicative factors used to adjust
litter size for effects of age of dam:
|AGE OF DAM||ADJUSTMENT FACTOR|
