Table 2 Simulation multivariate study. Means of percentage differences of population means a) and for population variance b) in the 10th breeding cycle with respect to the first cycle for trait 1 (T1), trait 2 (T2) and trait 3 (T3) for lines selected under three multivariate loss functions Kullback-Leibler (KL), Energy Score (EnergyS) and Multivariate Asymmetric Loss Function (MALF) (standard errors are in parentheses). Heritability of 0.3 and 0.6 for all traits
