Correlations estimated within the father-offspring (n = 645), full-sib (n = 502) and half-sib (n = 5,756) pairs and the whole population (n = 446,040).

1Analysis performed using information from 6–10 generations recorded on paper pedigree; 2Analysis performed using all markers (n = 28,740); 3Analysis performed using only markers in linkage equilibrium (LE) in L1 (9,579 LE markers).
