Short summary
This study was conducted to estimate the live weight of Hair goats from biometric measurements and to select variables in order to reduce the model complexity by using penalised regression methods, LASSO and Adaptive LASSO, for γ = 0.5 and γ = 1. It was concluded that Adaptive LASSO (γ = 1) estimated the live weight with the highest accuracy for both male and female Hair goats when all the criteria were considered.
