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...

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

The sustainability of beef production in the world demands the identification and selection of efficient animals that can produce more products with fewer inputs. Feed accounts for around 50-70% of variable costs of beef cattle systems, depending on the level of intensification adopted. Water has...

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...

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...
