Genetic and phenotypic correlations between milk production and body conformation traits in Black-and-White cows in Poland



Genetic and phenotypic correlations between milk production and body conformation traits in Black-and-White cows in Poland



Prace i Materialy Zootechniczne (9): 31-41



Study of data from 109 Polish Black-and-White Lowland herds revealed that phenotypic correlations of milk yield, fat yield and milk fat content to body conformation traits (withers height, chest girth etc.) were very low (r = <0.1). There was a slight positive genetic correlation (rG = less than or equal to 0.56) between height at withers and at sacrum and milk and fat yields, as well as between width of forechest and milk fat content.
