AbstractFull Text

Dairy cattle require healthy, functional udders to produce high-quality food for human consumption. Consumers also expect their food to be produced in a manner that safeguards animal health and welfare. Clinical and subclinical mastitis are the most frequent and costly diseases associated with...

AbstractFull Text

Metabolic stability or resistance to metabolic diseases can be improved by genetic selection. Strategies include direct selection based on clinically observed traits, and indirect selection using indicators or predictors of metabolic diseases. The most prevalent metabolic diseases in dairy cattle,...

Abstract

Routine recording of claw health status at claw trimming of dairy cattle has been established in several countries, providing valuable data for genetic evaluation. In this review, we examine issues related to genetic evaluation of claw health; discuss data sources, trait definitions, and data...

AbstractFull Text

Claw and foot disorders causing lameness are among the major culling reasons in dairy cattle around the world and play a significant role in farm profitability and compromised animal welfare. In recent years, several countries have started routine recording of claw health data. Documentation of...

AbstractFull Text

Systematic improvement of animal health requires knowledge about the status quo and reliable measures to characterize it. In dairy herds, health monitoring has gained importance to ensure sustainable and cost-efficient milk production in accordance with public expectations. In this context,...

Abstract

Metabolic disorders are disturbances to one or more of the metabolic processes in dairy cattle. Dysfunction of any of these processes is associated with the manifestation of metabolic diseases or disorders. In this review, data recording, incidences, genetic parameters, predictors, and status of...

Abstract

For several decades, breeding goals in dairy cattle focussed on increased milk production. However, many functional traits have negative genetic correlations with milk yield, and reductions in genetic merit for health and fitness have been observed. Herd management has been challenged to compensate ...

AbstractFull Text

For several decades breeding goals in cattle were strongly linked to increases in milk production. Many functional traits have unfavourable genetic correlations with milk yield, which has led to an accompanying reduction in genetic merit for functional traits. Herd management has been challenged to ...
