Posted On 05/01/2021
Exciting dissection of the exact way you can interpret genetic information on sires of various breeds but in particular Holstein. You will find this a great guide for each and any breed or breeds you are working with.
Of particular interest is the fact, that Fleckvieh has the lowest inbreeding coefficient (large herd book with over 20 blood lines) of any and all breeds. This limits genetic accidents and allows the breeder to make generous sire selections based on breeding goals. This below booklet is geared for use by students, but we all learn all our lives – so if it`s good for young students, if will serve anyone else as well!
