Genetic evaluation of milk yield in Alpine goats for the first four lactations using random regression models

F. G. Silva, Torres, R. A., Silva, L. P., Ventura, H. T., Silva, F. F., Carneiro, A. P. S., Nascimento, M., and Rodrigues, M. T., Genetic evaluation of milk yield in Alpine goats for the first four lactations using random regression models, vol. 13, pp. 10943-10951, 2014.

Random regression models have been used in evaluating test-day milk yield, providing accurate estimates of genetic values in animals. However, herd evaluation with only information from the first lactation may not be the best option from an economic perspective. Other factors should be taken into account, particularly other lactations. Our objective in this study was to analyze the genetic divergence between the first four lactations of Alpine goats.
