Abstract

By using the LactoCorder in the dairy recording system in Bavaria a lot of information about milkability is available based on automatic recording milk flow curves. Traits of milkability, which are derived from the milk flow curves, were analysed in association to somatic cell count of single cows...

Abstract

Video imaging of cattle carcasses is a new technique that predicts the weight of various carcass cuts and specifies the true market value of the whole carcass on the abattoir slaughter line. Based on the field results of over 30 000 slaughter bulls, heritabilities and genetic correlations across...

Abstract

Within a very short time Switzerland has established an animal tracing database (ATDB) on which data of all claw animal holders (approximately 87 000) and cattle movements from birth to death are registered according to EU regulations. The Swiss ATDB was set up and is run by ATDB Corp., a private...

Abstract

This paper lists important criteria the quality of commercial slaughterhouse data must fulfil in order to be used for genetic evaluation of beef or dual-purpose breeds. A short review of literature considering the use of data from slaughterhouses for genetic evaluation and corresponding research in ...

Abstract

A preliminary analysis of heteroskedasticity and genotype by environment interaction was performed with purebred Charolais data originating from different European countries. A sample of 114 829 200-day weights, recorded between 1992 and 2000 and stratified into six different origins (Ireland,...

Abstract

Health and fertility traits (or their indicator traits) have high economic value but have antagonistic genetic correlation with milk production traits. Hence, it is clear that these traits should be included in the breeding goal. Genetic evaluation for these traits, is however, hindered by data...

Abstract

The correlated response in health problems as a result of selection for increased milk yield is illustrated by results from a Norwegian selection experiment. The genetic difference between groups selected for high and low milk yield, respectively, was equivalent to 3.1 percent clinical mastitis...

Abstract

Every two years ICAR publishes a beef performance recording survey. This paper describes the survey and its changes during the last 18 years. It gives figures about countries who answer (for seven in 1986 to 26 in 2002) and briefly describes the more important countries for beef performance...

Abstract

Food safety has become increasingly important from both the perspectives of consumer and retailer. This has resulted in a demand to have systems in place that allow greater confidence in the product's safety through risk management programmes, QA programmes, and the ability to undertake both...
