The objectives were to infer heritability and genetic correlations between clinical mastitis (CM), milk fever (MF), ketosis (KET), and retained placenta (RP) within and between the first 3 lactations and to estimate genetic change over time for these traits. Records of 372,227 daughters of 2411 Norwegian Red (NRF) sires were analyzed with a 12-variate (4 diseases x 3 lactations) threshold model. Within each lactation, absence or presence of each of the 4 diseases was scored based on the cow's… CONTINUE READING
