AVERAGE. A term used in commerce to signify a contribution made by the owners of the ship, freight and goods, on board, in proportion to their respective interests, towards any particular loss or expense sustained for the general safety of the ship and cargo; to the end that the particular loser may not be a greater sufferer than the owner of the ship and the other owners of goods on board. Marsh. Ins. B. 1, c. 12, s. 7; Code de Com. art. 397; 2 Hov. Supp. to Ves. jr. 407; Poth. Aver. art. Prel.
     2. Average is called general or gross average, because it falls generally upon the whole or gross amount of the ship, freight and cargo; and also to distinguish it from what is often though improperly termed particular average, but which in truth means a particular or partial, and not a general loss; or has no affinity to average properly so called. Besides these there are other small charges, called petty or accustomed averages; such as pilotage, towage, light-money, beaconage, anchorage, bridge toll, quarantine, river charges, signals, instructions, castle money, pier money, digging the ship out of the ice, and the like.
     3. A contribution upon general average can only be claimed in cases where, upon as much deliberate on and consultation between the captain and his officers as the occasion will admit of, it appears that the sacrifice at the time it was made, was absolutely and indispensably necessary for the preservation of the ship and cargo. To entitle the owner of the goods to an average contribution, the loss must evidently conduce to the preservation of the ship and the rest of the cargo; and it must appear that the ship and the rest of the cargo were in fact saved.

Birth weight, weaning weight and pre-weaning average daily gains
Phenotypic traits recorded included birth weight (BW), average daily gain (ADG), back fat thickness (BF), slaughter weight (SW), marbling score (MAR), Warner-Bratzler shear force (WBSF), and ribeye area (REA).
2004) noted that average daily gain for a 12 wk period starting at 9 wks of age was lower for Berkshire and Tamworth purebreds than for Large White pigs (similar to the Yorkshire breed).
DGBW = Average daily gain in body weight (ADG) from birth to weaning; DGWP = ADG from weaning to the beginning of the performance test; DGPT = ADG from the beginning to the end of the performance test; DGBP = ADG from birth to the beginning of the performance test; DGBT = ADG from birth to the end of the performance test; DGWT = ADG from weaning to the end of the performance test; BFAT = Back fat thickness (mm).
There were 291 genotyped animals with records of back fat thickness, days to 90 kg, and average daily gain, which were measured at 156.
00 (5) (1) BW12 and BW24 = Body weight at age of 12 and 24 months, ADG = Average daily gain tested from 6 to 12 months, CWT = Carcass weight at finish (24 months), CLMA = Carcass LMA, CMS = Carcass marbling score, ULMA = Ultrasound measure of longissimus muscle area, UMS = Ultrasound measure of marbling score.
Thus, we try to identify interaction effects of SNPs of the CCDC158 gene for average daily gain (ADG), marbling score (MS), carcass cold weight (CWT) and longissimus muscle dorsi area (LMA) economic traits.
Average daily gain was calculated using the initial weight obtained after the adaptation period and the final weight.
Average daily gain between 0 and 4 weeks of age (ADG 0-4 wk), between 4 and 10 weeks of age (ADG 4-10 wk), and between 10 and 14 weeks of age (ADG 10-14 wk) was calculated from BW at each week of age.
