Genetic parameters for longevity measures in Brazilian Holstein cattle using linear and threshold models

Abstract

The aim in this study was to estimate variance components and heritability of different longevity measures related to productive life and survival at a specified age, using linear and threshold models, to specify the more appropriate measure to express longevity in Brazilian Holstein cows. Production and reproduction records of Holstein cows were collected… (More)
