Derivation of economic values in cattle breeding: a model at farm level


Derivation of economic values in cattle breeding: a model at farm level



Agricultural Systems 27(3): 195-213

A deterministic, static model for calculation of economic values in cattle breeding was developed and tested. The model describes quantitative relationships between levels of genetic merit for the considered traits and levels of inputs and outputs of the farm in relation to production circumstances. The model is restricted to calculation of economic values for milk and beef production traits and dry-matter intake capacity.
