- ... This study had 3 objectives: to estimate genetic parameters and predict sires' transmitting abilities for clinical mastitis in a Spanish Holstein population, to propose a methodology for comparing models with different response variables by using a cost-based loss function, and to evaluate alternative genetic evaluation models by using this methodology. On-farm records for clinical mastitis from h ...
