AbstractFull Text

Sophisticated statistical methods are used to predict the genetic merit of individuals. By utilizing millions of performance records from daughters, parents and other relatives, genetic and environmental effects are well separated to predict the genetic worth of each animal. Their application has...

AbstractFull Text

An Austrian wide health monitoring system for cattle has been established since 2006. A monitoring tool based on somatic cell count (SCC) is a further step for early and accurate awareness of subclinical mastitis cases. A logistic regression model based on the Dairy Herd Improvement (DHI) data for...
