Adsa05 Pvr Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Productive Life Including All Lactations, Longer Lactations, and Calf Value
  • 2. Goals
    • Allow credit for longer lactations in productive life (PL) Tsuruta et al, 2005, JDS 88:1156
    • Update factors that predict PL for cows still alive (censored cows)
    • Improve the PL trait definition by considering lactation curves
  • 3. Data Sets
    • Variance estimation from AIPL data
      • 1,098,329 Holsteins born 1994  97
      • 5109 sires with relationship matrix
      • 10 mo, 12 mo, or unlimited length
      • 2-mo calf value also considered
      • Data censored at 36 to 84 mo of age
    • Herds with complete lactations from DRMS history file
  • 4. PL Heritabilities and Correlations Lactation limit (mo) .068 +Calf .992 .067 No limit .961 .956 .069 12 mo .963 .957 .998 .073 10 mo +Calf None 12 10 h 2
  • 5. Correlation of PL with Protein Phenotypic = .33 1993, Genetic = .46 JDS 76:2758 .11 .12 .03 .00 Genetic .19 .20 .17 .16 Phenotypic No limit + calf credit No limit 12 mo 10 mo Correlation with protein

  • 7. Distribution of Months Until Culling 1 st -parity cows
  • 8. Lactation Curve yield = 5.9 + 9.5e [.059(1  e  .047*t )/.047  .0018*t] 35 25 20 15 10 5 0 30

  • 13. Conclusions
    • PL parameters are changing across time
      • Phenotypic correlations are fairly stable
      • Genetic correlations have declined rapidly
    • PL at 36-mo censoring has less info
      • Heritability is lower than 1993 estimate
      • Genetic correlation with final PL = .87 (vs .92)
    • Can increase lactation length limit in PL to 12 mo or use lactation curve credits
