The use of inbreeding for obtaining dairy bulls

For outbred and inbred progeny-tested bulls at a farm in the Moscow region of the former USSR in 1980-87, data are tabulated on body weight, body measurements, semen characters, CR achieved and milk yield. There were 15-24 and 232-335 bulls per trait in the 2 groups respectively.

Inbreeding intensities were studied in 17,796 young bulls of Black-Pied dairy breed (born between 1974 and 1985) from various bull raising stations. The results revealed that about 9% of the bulls were almost only moderately inbred, although the p...
