Knap, PW, Su, G Specific features of glycogen metabolism in the liver. Recently, Cannon [ 5 ] reviewed different metrics of surveillance resource optimization problems based on different objectives by decision-makers e. Such methods move away from optimization approaches [ 5 ], though these methods can represent a first approximation to the complexity of the surveillance problem, albeit without feedback effects implicitly considered. Prev Vet Med 88 1 : Selection to increase litter size at weaning was also accompanied by higher milk yield in early lactation [ 26 , 43 ], which represents a critical period for the survival of kits [ 49 ].

Thaxton, JP, Puvadolpirod, S Genetic correlations were 0. Conclusion: As a result of implementing the selection while, egg number was increasing, age at first egg and body weight at first egg were decreasing and egg weight was remaining almost at the same level.
