Abstract

Data are given for normal births and stillbirths from progeny of a number of bulls used for artificial insemination in Switzerland for the years 2003/2004, 2004/2005 and 2005/2006. Topics covered are ; importance of indices; development of parturition; influential factors; the best AI bulls;...

Abstract

The objective of the current study was to investigate the progeny testing scheme of dairy cattle from the perspective of an artificial insemination (AI) firm. A stochastic simulation model was used to model different scenarios in a competitive market among four AI firms (A, B, C and D). The impact...

Abstract

The objectives of the study were to investigate the genetic progress of milk yield in the Bavarian Fleckvieh breed and determine genetic gain factors. The theoretically achievable genetic gain was derived by assuming a breeding programme put into action. Next, the data sets, consisting of pedigrees ...
