1.   A rancher runs a closed herd of breeding cattle. He normally keeps and breeds the top 3% of his bull calves based on individual performance for yearling weight (YW). His sires average three years of age when their offspring are born. He is studying two female replacement strategies:
(Hint: Use the selection intensity chart in your book or slides)
•   Saving the top 20% of his heifers based on YW (Lf = 6.2 years)
•   Saving the top 60% based on YW (Lf = 3.2years)
a.   If h2YW = 0.5, and σPYW = 60 lb, calculate the expected rate of genetic change in yearling weight for each strategy. (2 pts)



b.   What elements of the key equation is the rancher experimenting with? (1pt)


c.   What element appears to be more important? (1pt)

Not helpful. In fact the table that you show isn't even close to what is needed. Very frustrated to need help on a formula but now one seems to be able to help. Look I need help otherwise I wouldn't be here.
