A current challenge in genetic improvement of cattle is to identify genomic selection strategies that could work across breeds. Breed differences, scarcity of data, and lack of quantitative trait loci (QTL) validation contribute to this challenge. We conducted a review of the literature to identify QTL, markers, and candidate genes that are associated with fertility across breeds to arrive at an integrated view of bovine fertility genomics and to guide the direction of future studies.
