Beside udder and fertility problems claw and foot disorders are main involuntary culling reasons. Linear description of feet and leg traits in the frame of conformation scoring didn’t reduce claw and leg problems as expected. Therefore new ways of data recording should be established in order to get more reliable information in this trait complex. In Germany claw and leg traits… CONTINUE READING
