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

This study was conducted to test the hypothesis that a combination of more frequently, but less accurately analysed milk components should give a more representative measure of a cow′s longer term milk composition than a DHIA sample taken once per month. Systematic biases with respect to stage 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

The number of dairy farms in the United States has seen a steady decrease from 70,375 herds in 2003 to 41,809 in 2016 while the number of dairy cattle has stayed relatively the same or even slightly increased from 9,103,000 milking cows in 2001 to 9,328,000 in 2016. Wisconsin statistics mirror the...
