Abstract

Background: Body weight (BW) at different ages are of increasing importance in dairy cattle breeding schemes, because of their strong correlation with energy efficiency traits, and their impact on cow health, longevity and farm economy. In total, 15,921 dairy cattle from 56 large-scale test-herds...

Abstract

A data set including 57,868 records for calf birth weight (CABW) and 9,462 records for weight at first insemination (IBW) were used for the estimation of direct and maternal genetic effects in Holstein Friesian dairy cattle. Furthermore, CABW and IBW were correlated with test-day production records ...

Abstract

Keeping dairy cows in grassland systems relies on detailed analyses of genetic resistance against endoparasite infections, including between- and within-breed genetic evaluations. The objectives of this study were (1) to compare different Black and White dairy cattle selection lines for...

Abstract

Interleukin-12 (IL-12) and interleukin-23 (IL-23) are proinflammatory cytokines produced by macrophages and dendritic cells in response to infection with intracellular pathogens. Given the importance of IL-12 and IL-23 for modulating inflammation and the host immune response, the IL-12 and IL-23...

Abstract

In dairy cattle, resistance, tolerance and resilience refer to the adaptation ability to a broad range of environmental conditions, implying stable performances (e.g. production level, fertility status) independent from disease or infection pressure. All three mechanisms resistance, tolerance and...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to estimate effects of SNP-genotypes on clinical mastitis, somatic cell score (SCS) and on estimated breeding values (EBV) for production traits in Holstein dairy cattle based on selective genotyping methodology. For identification of SNPs, we focused on candidate...

Abstract

Data for conception rate (CR) and somatic cell score (SCS) from 2055, 1344 and 2212 Holstein cows in first parity from the three production systems "indoor", a continental pasture based system "pasture" and pasture based systems located at the coast "p_coast", respectively, were used to identify...

Abstract

This study presents an approach combining phenotypes from novel traits, deterministic equations from cattle nutrition, and stochastic simulation techniques from animal breeding to generate test-day methane emissions (MEm) of dairy cows. Data included test-day production traits (milk yield, fat...

Abstract

Organic and low input farming differ substantially from conventional farming, suggesting the need for separate breeding programs. This requires knowledge of (co)variance components of important traits in low input or organic production systems. Test-day data for production and data for reproduction ...
