AbstractFull Text

Delta Instruments, St. Albans Cooperative Creamery, Cornell University and Miner Institute research collaboration on milk production efficiency has enabled the development of the first generation mid-FTIR herd management tools. A set of predictive fatty acids (FA) models has been developed to...

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...

AbstractFull Text

In-line milk meters allow us to derive milk volume, fat and protein yield for each cow at every milking, but produce less precise measurements than meters used for monthly herd testing. As the use of in-line milk meters increases, it is important to quantify how the data from in-line meters...

AbstractFull Text

During the last twenty years the proportion of automatic milking systems (AMS) in Germany growth to nearly ten percent. The huge amount of data out of AMS is a treasure but also a challenge in data processing for milk recording. For the comparability of daily milk yield and lactation yield between...

AbstractFull Text

Since the late 2000s, mid infrared (MIR) spectra acquired from milk recording analysis have been used routinely to phenotype new traits through prediction equations. These equations have been developed from a reference data set including milk samples analyzed both by MIR spectrometry and a...

Abstract

The paper deals with the reasons and need for the setting breeding goals based on biological efficiency and local production systems, while using available recordings in an national database. Two such traits, of major economic importance for the South African beef industry is briefly discussed. The ...
