This study objective was to develop a method to characterize the diversity of trade-offs between life functions expressed by dairy cows. Trade-offs between life functions involve adaptive responses of dairy cows to suboptimal nutritional environments. Until now, they have been explored mainly by examining unfavorable correlations between two traits. These two-trait approaches are limiting for exploring the diversity of trade-offs among cows. A multi-trait and dynamic method was developed to… CONTINUE READING
