Dairy cattle breeders use science and numbers every day when they go about selecting a bull to use or when they cull a female from their breeding program. The rigor and intensity of these two acts has a great bearing on the genetic progress that a herd can make. Research by SRUC has led to the national adoption of new breeding goals for dairy cattle that improves the health, welfare and economic performance of livestock in the UK and beyond. The aggregate benefits of genetic improvement in the UK dairy industry are estimated to have been between £ billion and £ billion since

Developments in other 51 disciplines (e.g., reproductive technologies) coupled with commercial struggle for increased market 52 share of the breeding industry, imply a possible change in .

Information and editorial guidance provided by: DAIRY CATTLE MARKETING OBJECTIVES OF DAIRY CATTLE File Size: KB. A deterministic approach was used to compare breeding strategies utilizing local and imported semen for improvement of dairy cattle in Kenya. The local selection programs considered were a closed progeny testing scheme (CPT) and a young bull system progeny of local bulls (PLB). The continuous semen importation (CSI) and young bull system progeny of imported bulls (PIB) were the Cited by:

Goals and Targets Having goals that you intend to meet is important for many areas of beef production but may be most critical for the breeding program.
Th ese goals may include reproduction, calf performance, income, cost containment, or a number of others. Breeding management decisions will impact each of these goals to varying Size: KB.
ligent sire selection, (b) a strict culling program, and (c) efficient reproduction. A good understanding of the fundamental principles is essential for success in all three. DAIRY GUIDELINES are available on each subject.
In this particular GUIDELINE we want to consider some essential principles for a successful dairy cattle breeding program.
The main aim of breeding dairy cattle is producing offspring that will also be used mainly for dairy production purpose. Raising dairy cattle for milk production requires close attention to bred them so that they produce the most milk possible.
Actually breeding dairy cattle will require some prior planning, close attention and observation and recordings of mating and regular recording of the. BREEDING GOALS FOR BEEF CATTLE E. CUNNINGHAM The Agvicuhuval Institute, Department of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Dunsinea, Castleknock, Co.

This article explains the value of systematic breeding programs for dairy cattle, how hormones are used, and factors important to achieving success. Menu. Animals and Livestock. Animals and Livestock This is the Presynch-Ovsynch program which is a typical program for dairy herds. If a cow is to calve consistently, she must deliver her first calf early.
Puberty is a function of breed, age, and weight. Beef heifers that are bred at 13–15 mo and calve at 22–24 mo have two advantages: they get closer attention from herdspeople by calving before the main herd starts to calve, and subsequently they have the extra time needed to rebreed with the mature cow herd.
The breeding program may use either artificial insemination (AI) or natural service. AI has been commercially available for >60 yr; it is widely used in dairy cattle but is used much less in beef cattle because of handling and labor costs.
AI offers a selection of bulls with known genetic potential, such as measured by estimated breeding values. Just consider the Ovsynch program where cows are handled four times. If the probability of correctly treating a cow (finding and injecting her with the appropriate product on the correct day) is 95 percent, then the probability that all cows are handled correctly at each of four handlings is only percent ( x x x ).Author: Jeff Stevenson, Kansas State University.
Preparing heifers for breeding minimizes costs and maximizes profitability. Heifers represent the best genetics in the herd, so ensuring they calve on time is crucial—especially when considering the price tag each heifer has until freshening.

What Are Your Dairy Goals. The New Year isn’t just a great time for setting personal goals; it’s the perfect time for business goals too. If you run a goat or sheep dairy farm, goals can help you to drive your business forward this year.
The aim of this study was to investigate genetic gain in dairy cattle breeding programs using international genetic evaluations.
Selection of bulls and cows across countries on average EBV. Breeding goals for dairy cows have typically emphasized production traits such as milk and meat yields.
We estimate the effects of genetic progress in different traits on variable costs of production. A variable cost function that is augmented with indices of dairy cows’ genetic merit in different groups of traits is estimated by using farm-level panel by: 4.
The genetic merit of a herd is a key determinant in productivity for dairy farmers. However, making breeding decisions to maximize the rate of genetic gain can be complex because there is no certainty about which cows will become pregnant with a heifer calf.
In this study, breeding worth (BrW) was used as a measure of genetic merit, and several Cited by: 4. The selection points for dairy cattle have nothing in common with those of beef cattle. This makes the selection and breeding of dual purpose animals almost impossible because there is a conflict of aims.
A program to improve the beef qualities of a dual purpose breed will result in. A successful breeding program can employ LUTALYSE effectively, but a poorly managed breeding program will continue to be poor when LUTALYSE is employed unless other management deficiencies are remedied first.
Cattle expressing estrus following LUTALYSE are receptive to breeding by a bull. Using bulls to breed large numbers of. Using the Ovsynch program and assuming a 40 percent pregnancy rate, the mean drug and labor cost was $46 per pregnancy. As the size of dairy herds increase and labor becomes more expensive, one can use systematic breeding programs to reduce the amount of time required for estrus detection and one can schedule AI.
The American Dairy Science Association (ADSA) is an international organization of educators, scientists and industry representatives who are committed to advancing the dairy industry and keenly aware of the vital role the dairy sciences play in fulfilling the economic, nutritive and health requirements of the world's population.
It provides leadership in scientific and technical support to. Summary: This timeless Feed and Nutrition article details four steps for developing a sound nutritional program: 1.
Testing forages to determine their nutrient content 2. Balancing rations for heifers, dry cows and milking cows 3. Implementing the balanced ration 4. Evaluating how well the feeding program has worked and implement changes to improve the program, if necessary.
Part Three explains insemination techniques for dairy and beef cattle, inseminator training, pregnancy determination in cattle, conception rates, and breeding problems. The exercise on "Embryo Transfer and Related Practices" explains the advances and techniques involved in the field.2/5(1).
