Description: Antral follicle count (AFC) has been widely used as a selection criterion by Senepol breeders in Brazil. However, it is yet not known its potential for selection response as well as its genetic association with carcass traits. Thus, the objective of this study was to estimate heritability for AFC and its genetic correlations with ultrasound carcass traits in Senepol cattle. Records on 1,793 Senepol heifers, involved in performance tests, were used.
