Sixteen phenotypic variables measured included ear length, neck length, head rump length (HRL), head rump curve length (HRCL), body length (BL), sacral length (SL), body weight (BW), heart girth (HG), punch girth (PG), pelvic triangle area (PTA), withers height (WH), croup height (CH), clearance at sternum (CS), clearance at udder (CU), distance between tuber coxae bones (DTC) and distance between tuber ischii bones (DI).
In the first step, age, parity, previous litter size, days open, body coat colour and data of sixteen phenotypic variables covering ear length, neck length, head rump length, head rump curve length, body length, sacral length, body weight, heart girth, punch girth, pelvic triangle area, withers height, croup height, clearance at sternum, clearance at udder, distance between tuber coxae bones and distance between tuber ischii bones collected on 389 does were analyzed using multiple stepwise logistic forward regressions (PROC LOGISTIC; SAS, 2012) to do the stepwise selection for identifying the prognostic factors for litter size.
where, litter size is the dependent variable; age, parity, previous litter size, days open, ear length, neck length, body weight, head lump length, head rump curve length, body length, sacral length, wither height, croup height, heart girth, punch girth, clearance at udder, clearance at sternum, pelvic triangle area, distance between tuber coxae bones, distance between tuber ischii bones are the predictor variables that 'x' represents; [alpha] = intercept of the model and [beta] = the coefficient of predictor variables.
