AbstractFull Text

Fourier-transform mid-infrared (FTIR) milk spectra data is routinely collected within milk recording programs of different countries. This information can be used both for assessing milk composition and for genetic evaluations. Establishing an optimal strategy for the use of spectra data in genetic ...

AbstractFull Text

Scoring cows on conformation has been successful as tool to define the right type of cow. The development of linear traits also made it possible to use conformation traits in mating programs and has given knowledge on the relationship between conformation and functional traits. International...

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

During the last 15 years, France Génétique Elevage (FGE) has developed a quality management system in compliance with ISO 9001 standard, in process mode, involving more than 180 independent organisations and 6 different professional activities, in the field of cattle genetic improvement. FGE has...

AbstractFull Text

Genetic evaluation beyond common economic traits are necessary in tropical sire summary. Thailand Tropical Holstein dairy cattle has been development for improvement of milk yield (MY), milk composition (Fat, Protein, SNF), SCC, days open under tropical environment for decades. Nowadays, there are...

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

Temperature and humidity levels above a certain threshold decrease milk production in dairy cows, and there is genetic variation associated with the amount of lost production. To enable selection for improved heat tolerance, we first developed genomic estimated breeding values (GEBV) for heat...

AbstractFull Text

Breeding goals are revised worldwide according to the needs of farmers but also considering requirements from the consumers. Recently, farmers in Austria expressed their demand for further developments in the areas of metabolism, claw health and feed efficiency. The core challenge is to define...

AbstractFull Text

Comprehensive new selection indices have been developed for Holstein, Jersey (Dairy) and Bonsmara (Beef) breeds in South Africa. In all cases the developments were based on the common practices followed in local production systems, biological knowledge, prices realised for the products, costs of...

AbstractFull Text

In 2007, the number of calves registered from beef herds in Ireland with sire details was 168,000. In 2008, it was 741,000. This represents an increase of over 440%. Having an integrated approach to performance recording whereby all data recorded for statutory and non-statutory purposes are...
