The researchers plan to examine a total of 53, SNPs f cows and bulls representing several commercial dairy breeds and an ARS research population at Beltsville. Then they'll correlate SNP data to traits of interest, such as milk, fat, and protein production. Genomic evaluation of health traits in dairy cattle J.B. Cole1, K.L. Parker Gaddis2, J.S. Clay3, & C. Maltecca2 1Animal Improvement Programs Laboratory, Agricultural Research Service, USDA, Beltsville, MD , USA 2Department of Animal Science, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC ,USA. This book contains 24 chapters covering various fields of genetics and biology of cattle. It serves as a reference book on cattle genetics for researchers, lecturers, students, farmers and specialists working in the industry. The first five chapters focus on systematics, phylogeny, domestication, breeds and factorial genetics of cattle. Genetic Improvement of Dairy Cattle1 C. J. Wilcox, D. W. Webb, and M. A. DeLorenza2 1.

Sonstegard2 1Animal Genomics and Improvement Laboratory, Agricultural Research Service, US Department of Agriculture, Beltsville, Maryland –;. Goals / Objectives The long-term objective of this project is to enhance selection in target ruminant populations by integrating traditional, quantitative-based selection methods with DNA marker-based tools. To successfully meet this objective and better understand the underlying gene networks affecting phenotypic variation, basic research to characterize both genome structure and activity.

As the field of genetics has advanced, new undesirable haplotypes have been discovered. Both offer genomic evaluations for dairy and beef cattle. There are a few different levels of evaluations that are based on the number of markers. The use of genetic prediction (EPD's) is one of the most powerful tools in the hands of the beef cattle producer. It is dependent upon the producer's ability to understand the use of EPD's in selecting breeding stock with superior genetic merit to increase the proportion of genes having the desired effect on traits of economic importance.
