Angus sires and Angus x Hereford dams). She plans to mate her cows to ½ C

the purebred populations are 600, 600, 550 and 675 lbs, for Red Angus, Angus, Hereford and
d)Assuming all four breeds are unrelated, calculate the amount of individual, maternal
and total hybrid vigor for weaning weight that is retained in this cross.
