The objective of this study was to evaluate the ability of mid-infrared predictions of blood BHB concentration to serve as a tool for large-scale phenotyping and management tool in New Zealand dairy farms. The data were on 553 cows (Holsteins and Holstein x Jersey crossbreds), from 2 farms located...

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

There is evidence globally that genetic gains in cattle production efficiency traits can also drive improvements in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity (i.e. methane or CO2 equivalent emissions per unit of product). In this study, we predicted improvements in GHG emissions intensity expected...
