Abstract

Background: Intensified selection of polled individuals has recently gained importance in predominantly horned dairy cattle breeds as an alternative to routine dehorning. The status quo of the current polled breeding pool of genetically-closely related artificial insemination sires with lower...

Abstract

The objective of the present study was to compare genetic gain and inbreeding coefficients of dairy cattle in organic breeding program designs by applying stochastic simulations. Evaluated breeding strategies were: (i) selecting bulls from conventional breeding programs, and taking into account...

Abstract

The objective of the present study was to conduct a stochastic simulation study on the possible benefits of an application of genomic selection in dairy cattle breeding programs according to a variety of selection schemes. In addition, the heritability of the trait in question, the accuracy of...
