  5. 5. Genetic correlations among longevity, claw and leg health evaluated in the nordic countries and type traits evaluated in USA, in Holstein Dairy Cattle

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Breeding and Genetics

    Author : Isabelle Hultdin; [2018]
    Keywords : genetic correlation; type traits; claw and leg health; longevity; Holstein; dairy cattle;

    Abstract : The Holstein breed is known for its high milk yield and this has been achieved partially by genetic selection for yield. As a consequence, functional traits have deteriorated. Claw and leg disorders are common reasons for involuntary culling: 8.4% to 8. READ MORE
