The present study estimated genetic parameters for yields of milk, fat, and protein applying REML procedures under test day animal models. The data consisted of 155,494 test day records from 15,756 Friesian cows in first lactation from one region in northern Germany. The models applied included a traditional herd-year-season model for the analysis of single test days and 305-d records and two test day models differing by the definition of contemporary groups, either as herd-year-season of… CONTINUE READING
