• Genomic selection in small dairy cattle populations - exemplified by model development and simulation studies of Danish Jersey

Project: Research

See relations at Aarhus University


The aim of the project is to develop genomic models to predict breeding values for traits of economic value in the breeding goal of a small cattle population. Introduction of foreign genetic material is taken into account. Deterministic simulation studies are used to optimize breeding plan parameters for a genomic breeding plan in a small dairy cattle population. Finally, the value of incorporating genotyped females with phenotypes in the reference population is investigated
