AbstractFull Text

Recent research showed the usefulness of using estimated breeding values (EBV) for mid-infrared (MIR) based biomarkers in genetic improvement. A novel class of biomarkers was defined based on modelling responses of milk composition (e.g., mid-infrared (MIR) based) to stress expressed on continuous...

AbstractFull Text

Recent research showed the usefulness of using estimated breeding values (EBV) for mid-infrared (MIR) based biomarkers in genetic improvement. Similarly, research has also shown that genetic variation is contained in the absorbance traits along the MIR band of wavelengths. Targeted extraction of...

AbstractFull Text

Although herd management and, more recently, selection have mitigated partially the deterioration of functional traits, these efforts are still hampered by the difficulties in direct recording of sufficient relevant phenotypes. Recent advances in the use of midinfrared (MIR) spectroscopy, as the...

Abstract

The simplification of recording procedures constitutes an economic alternative to reduce operational costs when national recording programs are concerned in low input production systems. A total of 54 940 daily milk yields from a herd of 63 Holstein cows recorded in 3 years were used in this study. ...
