Genetic parameters for buffalo milk yield and milk quality traits using Bayesian inference
(Journal of Dairy Science, 2010-05-01) [Artigo]
The availability of accurate genetic parameters for important economic traits in milking buffaloes is critical for implementation of a genetic evaluation program. In the present study, heritabilities and genetic correlations ...
Genetic parameters for test-day yield of milk, fat and protein in buffaloes estimated by random regression models
(Journal of Dairy Research, 2012-08-01) [Artigo]
The test-day yields of milk, fat and protein were analysed from 1433 first lactations of buffaloes of the Murrah breed, daughters of 113 sires from 12 herds in the state of São Paulo, Brazil, born between 1985 and 2007. ...
Genetic parameters of total milk yield and factors describing the shape of lactation curve in dairy buffaloes
(Journal of Dairy Research, 2012-02-01) [Artigo]
The objective of this study was to apply factor analysis to describe lactation curves in dairy buffaloes in order to estimate the phenotypic and genetic association between common latent factors and cumulative milk yield. ...
Milk fatty acid characterization and genetic parameter estimates for milk conjugated linoleic acid in buffaloes
(Journal of Dairy Research, 2011-05-01) [Artigo]
The objectives of this study were to analyse buffalo milk fat composition, to verify the activity of Delta (9)-desaturase enzyme in the mammary gland, as well as to estimate additive genetic variances for milk, fat and ...
