Abstract

Changing production circumstances, a wide range of traits and the international bull market enable dairy farmers to make increasingly specific choices concerning artificial insemination (AI) bulls. Finland is part of the joint Nordic dairy cattle breeding programme where in addition to yield, high...

Abstract

Background: Color and pH of meat measured 24 h post mortem are common selection objectives in pig breeding programs. Several amino acid substitutions in PRKAG3 have been associated with various meat quality traits. In our previous study ASGA0070625, a SNP next to PRKAG3, had the most significant...

Abstract

In this study, a linear programming model was developed to maximize the gross margin of milk production by determining the optimal use of different reproductive technologies in a dairy herd. The model has the potential to vary the use of conventional artificial insemination, insemination with...

Abstract

Information on diseases of dairy cows in Finland is entered into the national disease register. Before the data from such types of secondary database are used, the quality of the data needs to be validated. In this study, 7,324 veterinary records for culled cows were compared against records in the ...
