Application of growth models to describe the lactation curves for test-day milk production in Holstein cows
Journal of Applied Animal Research
In order to describe the lactation curves of milk yield traits, six standard growth models (Brody, logistic, Gompertz, Schumacher, Von Bertalanffy and Morgan) were used. Data were 911,144 test-day records for unadjusted milk yield , 4% fat-corrected milk yield and energy-corrected milk yield from the first lactation of Iranian Holstein cows, which were collected on 834 dairy herds in the period from 2000 to 2011. Each model was fitted to monthly production records of dairy cows using the NLINdoi:10.1080/09712119.2015.1124336 fatcat:jejppz7alzfw3du7ra7yiwuj7a
