Longevity of dairy cows in relation to their type traits
Based on linear type traits, the lifetime performance of dairy cows can be determined. For example the milk yield or the number of calvings, that can be expected from a cow during its life. The analysis suggests that although a simple correlation between type traits and milk yield is small, the relationship is not linear and the influence of the linear type trait may not be negligible. Within assessing individual exterior features it is important to take into account interactions between the conformation traits. Theirs effect is mutual and one should consider them altogether.
