Scope for evaluating dairy sires using first and second lactation records



Scope for evaluating dairy sires using first and second lactation records



Livestock Production Science 10(6): 531-553



Model calculations conducted on the value of including 2nd-lactation records in a sire evaluation procedure suggested an increase in accuracy of about 6% for sires with <more or =>25 first-lactation daughters, of which 50-70% surviving to 2nd lactation. A 2-trait Best Linear Unbiased Prediction procedure utilised information from both lactations simultaneously, so that accuracies were improved through additional genetic information and extra connections in the data.
