International genetic evaluation procedures for dairy cattle, and their benefits and limitations, are reviewed. These include the joint analysis and conversion of national genetic evaluation results and the joint analysis of individual cow performance records from different countries. This system...

A review. Temperament of livestock species has been measured in numerous ways, and it is unlikely that all tests measure the same trait. Hence the different tests reviewed are categorized and the behaviours that are measured by each of the categories are discussed. Estimates of heritability of the...

A review. Studies that have reported the effect of inbreeding on traits of economic performance in beef cattle are reviewed. In all studies, inbreeding of the individual had a consistent adverse effect on growth traits from birth to maturity and on preweaning maternal traits, an increase of 1% in...

This paper reviews the genetic and phenotypic parameters of birth, weaning and yearling weights, muscling score and ultrasonic fat depth of beef cattle, published worldwide. A summary is also given of estimates of genetic parameters due to maternal effects on these traits. The estimates of h2 for...

Data published on puberty and factors that affect age at first calving indicate that the onset of ovarian activity in zebu-type cattle occurs arund 22 months of age, and that crossbreeding, particularly with Jersey bulls, can reduce this interval to as little as 15 months. Year and month of birth,...
