QTL effects are given as (maternal) - (paternal) allele effects. +, *, ** indicate the 10%, 5% and 1% significance levels respectively.

UBFr = live ultrasonic backfat thickness measured at the level of the rump; UBFb = live ultrasonic backfat thickness measured at the level of the back; UBFn = live ultrasonic backfat thickness measured at the level of the neck; UBFm = live ultrasonic backfat thickness mean at 120 or 140 days of age. LMC = carcass lean meat content; BFrump = carcass backfat thickness measured at the level of the rump; BFback = carcass backfat thickness measured at the level of the back,; BFneck = carcass backfat thickness measured at the level of the neck; BFmean = average carcass backfat thickness.
