1Analysis performed using information from 6ā€“10 generations recorded on paper pedigree; 2Analysis performed using all markers (nā€‰=ā€‰28,740); 3Analysis performed using only markers in linkage equilibrium (LE) within each line (9579, 7984 and 10235 LE markers for L1, L2 and L3, respectively). L1, L2 and L3 were composed of 945, 313 and 218 animals, respectively.
