NTM Unlocked - Longevity correlations
Dairy cow’s health and well-being is a sophisticated system where everything is interconnected. As an example, hoof health influences the longevity of the animal. Our breeding goal is a long-lasting cow that is healthy, trouble-free with high lifetime production. This means lower costs, less work, better profit and a better life for dairy farmers and the cows.
A correlation of 0.5 between NTM and a single trait indicates that 50% out of the maximum progress is expected to be achieved for that trait if you use NTM as your selection tool rather than select only for a specific trait. Longevity has a strong positive correlation with NTM, equal to 0.64. So, if you rely on NTM, you are able to achieve 64% progress for longevity out of the maximum progress that you would achieve if you only selected for Longevity.
The picture shows the five traits that have the strongest correlation with Longevity. It is not surprising that you see the traits that are among the most common culling reasons for dairy cows. It is also interesting that longevity has a quite strong negative correlation to Frame (-0.35). This means larger cows tend to have more health problems, and do not stay long in the herd.
Correlations with longevity:
Udder Health 36%
Calving ease 21%
General Health 39%
Hoof Health 38%
