Responses to selection for milk traits in dairy buffaloes

L. O. Seno, Cardoso, V. L., and Tonhati, H., Responses to selection for milk traits in dairy buffaloes, vol. 5, pp. 790-796, 2006.

The aim of the present study was to estimate the index and individual responses to selection for milk (MY), fat (FY) and protein (PY) yields for different breeding goals for two commercial buffalo milk production systems in São Paulo State characterized by: 1) all milk produced is sold to the industry (MILK) and 2) all milk produced is used in the mozzarella cheese-making process at the farm (MOZZARELLA). The current payment policy is based exclusively on milk volume. The mozzarella price refers to the wholesale selling price.
