The heritabilities of longevity traits, genetic parameters among longevity traits, correlation between longevity and conformation traits and regression models using conformation traits to explain longevity are reviewed. The review covers estimates based on dairy cows from the literature from 1970...

A review. Feet and leg traits have always been an important issue in cattle breeding and husbandry as they are associated with lameness, and thus exert a major influence on the welfare and profitability of dairy cattle. Firstly, studies on measurements of foot angle and rear leg side view, which...

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...

The genetic associations of lifetime profitability with production, type and longevity in dairy cattle are not well established. High first lactation production is a good indicator of lifetime yield and longevity. However, rating sires on heifer performance to 48 months of age should assist in...
