Table 3 Survival rate of calves descending from different mating types

From: A nonsense mutation in PLD4 is associated with a zinc deficiency-like syndrome in Fleckvieh cattle

Carrier-state for the p.W215X-mutation Number of calves Survival rate at different days
Sire Maternal grandsire 6 10 20 50 102 202 300
Non-carrier Carrier 2,552 0.961 0.957 0.949 0.940 0.924 0.909 0.903
Carrier Carrier 1,213 0.931 0.923 0.911 0.895 0.869 0.843 0.834
  1. The survival rate of calves from different mating types was estimated using a Kaplan-Meier estimator.
