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

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

International genetic trend study in Brown Swiss bulls has revealed the largest changes in genetic trend direction for somatic cell count (SCC) (Gorjanc et. al., 2011). Somatic cells in milk are represented by epithelial cells and leukocytes (immune cells), where the latter predominate and in case...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of this study was to explore how mid-infrared spectroscopy (MIR)-derived energy predictions are associated with various fertility parameters and assess their use as early warning indicators of potential fertility issues. MIR-derived energy trait predictions for energy balance and...
