PC-programs for estimating economic weights in cattle

, : PC-programs for estimating economic weights in cattle. Zivocisna Vyroba 41(3): 97-101

Brief descriptions are given of 2 programs. Program EW calculates economic weights for up to 13 traits in dual-purpose or dairy cattle. For a given trait, up to 7 models can be chosen, reflecting different management methods, quota systems, and options in the definition of traits and breeding goals.

Linear functions expressing the relative costs and benefits of traits which can be improved by breeding schemes are presented. The traits considered were weaning weight, daily gain, age at slaughter, dystocia, milk yield and adult body weight. Eco...

A bioeconomic model for dairy cattle production was used to estimate economic values of 18 traits for dairy sires in purebred Holstein and Czech Fleckvieh populations. Economic values were defined as partial derivatives of the profit function wit...
