In 2021, CDCB USDA AGIL and NDHIA (National Dairy Herd Information Association) started a multi-year project to update or develop new milk yield projection factors and develop reliable tools for on-farm management. The first learnings of this comprehensive project have been presented in recent articles and seminars.
Research by collaborators from five universities, CDCB and USDA AGIL was published in the November 1, 2022, Frontiers in Genetics: Impact of epistasis effects on the accuracy of predicting phenotypic values of residual feed intake in U.S. Holstein cows.
