Influence of genetic merit on reproductive performance of dairy cattle on commercial farms



Influence of genetic merit on reproductive performance of dairy cattle on commercial farms



Journal of Agricultural Science 142(4): 477-482



Reproductive performance has been reported to be declining within the UK dairy herd due to continued selection for increased milk production. The aim of the current work was to assess the influence of genetic merit for milk production (as described by PIN<sub>95</sub>, the index in use at the time), and level of herd performance on reproductive performance.
