Cow Livability Trait Being Introduced In August

Consider the scenario of a cow leaving the milking herd. Culling a cow can sometimes be a good situation when she is sold for reasons like poor production, fertility issues, health challenges, or overstocked pens, thus allowing your best cows to thrive. But what about when a cow leaves the milking herd because she died? There is a substantial difference to the bottom line of the dairy farm when a cow can leave under her own power compared to if she were to die on the farm. This undesirable situation results in a loss of income and other associated costs. Therefore, breeding for cows that are genetically more likely to stay alive in the herd creates a better scenario for both the farmer and the cow.

Daughter Update: Milking Gambler Daughters are Turning Heads

Accelerated Genetics, Genetics Services Coordinator Andrew Hetke has had the opportunity to view daughters of 014HO07303 Gambler. Of course, the expectations were high for Gambler right from the start. Gambler comes from seven generations of excellent cows, with his dam being Le-O-La Atwood Gypsy (pictured above) who was scored EX-92 at 4-10. Gypsy excels in production, with each of her lactations approaching or exceeding 30,000 pounds of milk and with her best lactation at 4-00 completing with over 37,000 pounds of milk with a 4.2% and 3.0% fat and protein respectively. Read on to hear about Andrew's impressions of the daughters.

IMAGE: Inbreeding Management and Genetic Excellence

While breeding for your herd profitability goals, inbreeding can sometimes be overlooked as a key priority.  However, the long-term effects of choosing sires that lack genetic diversity over multiple generations can greatly impact your bottom-line. Research1 has shown that inbreeding has a relationship with overall Productive Life, production, calving interval, fertility, and reproduction. Therefore, managing genetic diversity should be a key priority in your genetic strategy.
