Abstract

A healthy sucking reflex is essential for newborn calves to ensure sufficient colostrum intake in the first few hours postpartum. In recent decades, European Brown Swiss breeders have repeatedly reported that some calves lack the ability to consume colostrum directly after birth due to an absent...

Abstract

Background: Modern dairy cattle breeding goals include several production and more and more functional traits. Estimated breeding values (EBV) that are combined in the total merit index usually come from single-trait models or from multivariate models for groups of traits. In most cases, a...

Abstract

Background: SNP (single nucleotide polymorphisms) genotype data are increasingly available in cattle populations and, among other things, can be used to predict carriers of specific mutations. It is therefore convenient to have a practical statistical method for the accurate classification of...

Abstract

Genomic imprinting is a phenomenon that arises when the expression of genes depends on the parental origin of alleles. Epigenetic mechanisms may induce the full or partial suppression of maternal or paternal alleles, thereby leading to different types of imprinting. However, imprinting effects have ...

Abstract

Mitigating the dairy chain's contribution to climate change requires cheap, rapid methods of predicting enteric CH4 emissions (EME) of dairy cows in the field. Such methods may also be useful for genetically improving cows to reduce EME. Our objective was to evaluate different procedures for...

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

Background: Milkability, primarily evaluated by measurements of milking speed and time, has an economic impact in milk production of dairy cattle. Recently the Italian Brown Swiss Breeders Association has included milking speed in genetic evaluations. The main objective of this study was to...

Abstract

Cheese yield is the most important technological parameter in the dairy industry in many countries. The aim of this study was to infer (co)variance components for cheese yields (CY) and nutrient recoveries in curd (REC) predicted using Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy of samples...

Abstract

Background: Genomic selection and estimation of genomic breeding values (GBV) are widely used in cattle and plant breeding. Several studies have attempted to detect population subdivision by investigating the structure of the genomic relationship matrix G. However, the question of how these effects ...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to elucidate the relationships between various cheesemaking-related traits, namely the well-known traditional milk coagulation properties (MCP), the new curd firming and syneresis traits, the cheese yield, and the curd nutrient recoveries or whey losses (all measured at...
