As it was observed, the genetic correlation between reproductive traits in this study was moderate to high, thus the choice for each one of these traits leads to genetic improvement of other traits.

The estimated genetic correlation between days open and lactation length was also positive (0.
The genetic parameters usually studied refer to genetic variances in its addictive and non-addictive components, to heritability coefficient (lato and stricto sensu), and tothe interactions between genetic and environmental effects and genetic correlations among these characters (Silveira, 2007).
Genetic correlations between growth traits in molluscs were first estimated for the European oyster Ostrea edulis by Toro and Newkirk (1990), who found a high genetic correlation between live weight and shell height at age.

Next, genetic correlations were calculated to examine the genetic overlap among PARCA subtests (see Table 4).
By treating different states (x and y) of the same trait expressed in two sites as separate traits, the across-environment genetic correlation contributed by a significant QTL ([r.
