Methane (CH4) emission is an important environmental trait in dairy cows. Breeding aiming to mitigate CH4 emissions require the estimation of genetic correlations with other economically important traits and the prediction of their selection response. In this study, test-day CH4 emissions were predicted from milk mid-infrared spectra of Holstein cows. PredictedCH4emissions (PME)and log-transformedCH4 intensity (LMI) computedas thenatural logarithmofPMEdivided by milk yield (MY). Genetic… CONTINUE READING
