Lactation curve models for estimating gene effects over a timeline.


The effects of genes are commonly estimated using random regression models based on test-day data and only give a general gene effect. Alternatively, lactation curve models can be used to estimate biological and environmental effects, or to predict missing test-day data and perform breeding value estimation. This study combines lactation curve models and… (More)
