Heritabilities of and genetic and phenotypic correlations between condition score and production and conformation traits in Black-and-White cows



Heritabilities of and genetic and phenotypic correlations between condition score and production and conformation traits in Black-and-White cows



Animal Science Papers and Reports 23(1): 33-41



The objectives of this study were to estimate the heritability (h2) of body condition score (BCS), body conformation (type) and production traits of Black-and-White cows maintained by small farmers of Eastern Poland as well as genetic (rG) and phenotypic (rP) correlations between the traits mentioned. Considered were 2012 cows with completed 305-day lactation from the years 1997-1999. The h2 estimate for BCS was 0.37.
