The heritability of disturbed milk production in Swedish Yorkshire sows was estimated to be 0.8 with a threshold model, using Gibbs sampling. Of the 6920 sows analysed, 4% showed disturbed milk production. An unfavourable genetic correlation was found between disturbed milk production and lean growth.
