Genetic analysis of production and reproduction traits of Karan Fries and Karan Swiss cattle



Genetic analysis of production and reproduction traits of Karan Fries and Karan Swiss cattle



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 74(2): 225-228



The genetic parameters for important economic traits were estimated in a closed herd of Karan Fries and Karan Swiss cattle (n=656). The results revealed that additive genetic variability of age at first calving and milk production traits were moderate to high indicating a large variation in the transmitting ability of sires for AFC and production traits.
