Methods for Determining a Breeding Value Based on a Plurality of Genetic Markers
The present invention provides a method for determining the individual effect of a plurality of genetic marker alleles on udder health, fertility and/or other health of a plurality of reference bovine subjects. The marker effects are employed in another aspect of the invention for determining a genomic estimated breeding value of a bovine subject based on the genotype of said bovine subject by correlating its genotype with the effect of each individual genetic marker allele on udder health, fertility, other health and/or estimated breeding value of the reference bovine subjects. Further provided are methods and computer program products and computer readable media for executing the methods of the invention.
