1. Trait: W6 = Weight at week 6; W6m = Weight at week 6, missing marker genotypes were treated as 3rd allele; W10 = Weight at week 10; observations of all traits were multiplied by 102.

2. Model: (1) = polygenic; (2) = genomic; (3) = polygenic and genomic; with 100/10/2.5% of the markers allowed to have an effect.
