GENETIC AND NON-GENETIC EFFECTS ON PRODUCTION AND REPRODUCTIVE TRAITS OF JERSEY CATTLE BREED AT WOLAITA SODO DAIRY FARM, SOUTH ETHIO

Abstract:

This study was carried out to estimate genetic parameters and to evaluate non-genetic ef ects on milk production and reproductive performance of Jersey cattle via an animal model by using variance component estimation VCE-6 version 6.0.2 & PEST 4.2.5 and SAS software (2016) version 9.4 the GLM procedure. The data was obtained from a state farm, located in South Ethiopia, Woliata Sodo, Ethiopia. The least-square mean value of production traits such as Daily Milk Yield (DMY) and Lactation Length (LL) was 13.52 kg and 352.89 days, respectively. In addition, the average least-square means for reproductive traits of the Age at First Calving (AFC) and Calving Interval (CI) are 952.40 days and 490.01 days, respectively.
