2P-values for the test of a linear model accounting for fixed effects of the haplotype, sire and dam.

3Haplotypes are coded as x-y, where x is the allele for the SNP ACSL4I3B280R, and y is the allele for the SNP ACSL4I3B359M.

4Values within a trait with different superscripts differed significantly (P < 0.05). A value marked as a is significantly different from those marked as b.
