The objectives of this study were to estimate the heritability of body condition scores (BCS) from producer and consultant-recorded data and to describe the genetic and phenotypic relationships among BCS, production traits, and reproductive performance. Body condition scores were available at calving, postpartum, first service, pregnancy check, before dry off, and at dry off from the Dairy Records Management Systems in Raleigh, NC, through the PCDART program. Heritabilities, genetic… CONTINUE READING
