Data on the Ethiopian Boran and their crosses with Holstein Friesian cows collected over a period of 23 years (1990 to 2012) at Holeta Agricultural Research Center (HARC) were used to determine heritability, genetic and phenotypic correlations of the milk production and reproduction traits of Ethiopian Boran cattle with different levels of Holstein Friesian inheritance. Multivariate and univariate analysis was employed to estimate heritability and bi-variant analysis was used for estimating… CONTINUE READING
