Inbreeding depression is the reduction in fitness in offspring resulting from mating individuals that share at least one common ancestor. The objective was to compare the effect of genome-wide and location specific homozygosity on fertility and milk production traits in dairy cattle. Pedigree inbreeding was compared with genomic inbreeding which is the… CONTINUE READING
