Short summary
This study determined polymorphisms of the POU1F1 gene and their relationships to milk yield and components, litter size, birth weight, and weaning weight in goats. With the POU1F1/AluI locus, significant associations were found between genotypes with lactation milk yield and litter size. A significant relationship was determined between genotypes and birth weight and the POU1F1/PstI locus (p < 0.05). The POU1F1 gene can be used as a molecular marker for economic features.
