Inheritance of twinning in a herd of Holstein-Friesian cattle



Inheritance of twinning in a herd of Holstein-Friesian cattle



J. Dairy Sci 43: 393-400



Data were taken from the 1920-50 records for 1905 cows of the Carnation Milk Farms. There were 313 multiple births out of 7387 observed calvings. Of the 266 cows producing twins 188 had short oestrous cycles or cystic ovaries during at least one reproductive period. There were no significant differences in twinning rates between daughters of twinning dams which were cystic or non-cystic.
