Abstract

The objective of this work was to evaluate covariance components and breeding values for 305-day cumulative milk yield with data from the first three lactations of Gyr cows. A total of 14,659 lactations of 9,079 cows were evaluated, using the models of repeatability, multiple-trait (MT), and random ...

Abstract

Data of 13,406 records from 7,153 lactating Gyr dairy cows whose calving occurred from 1960 to 2008 were used. The purpose of this study was to estimate gains or losses in milk production and economic values attributed to the variation in the calving interval (IP). The average of milk production...

Abstract

The objective of this work was to estimate covariance functions for test-day milk yield (TDMY). Twenty-seven thousand TDMY records of 3,362 first lactations of Gir cows calving between 1990 and 2007 were analyzed. The TDMY data were grouped in 20 biweekly classes, analyzed by random regression...
