In this study we investigate the potential of enlarging the reference population for genomic prediction in dairy cattle by routinely genotyping a random sample of the first-crop daughters of every AI bull in the breeding program. We analyzed small nuclear pedigrees, each consisting of a genotyped selection candidate and 3 generations of genotyped male ancestors. Genotypes were taken from the genomic routine evaluation of Fleckvieh cattle in Germany and Austria. The phenotypic information of a… CONTINUE READING
