  1. Note – Values are presented by the least squares means ± standard error. The advantageous effects of the diplotypes were marked in bold, whereas the negative effects were underlined. BW = body weight (g); CW = carcass weight (g); SEW = semi-eviscerated weight; EW = eviscerated weight; LMW = leg muscle weight (g); BMW = breast muscle weight (g); % indicates these traits relative to CW.
