The EU-funded 'Development of integrated livestock breeding and management strategies to improve animal health, product quality and performance in European organic and 'low input' milk, meat and egg production' (Low input breeds) project has issued a call for three new project partners. The call is to recruit partners to collaborate in the dairy cattle sub-project (SP1, improving 'low input' dairy cattle) of the low input breeds project. The main objective of this sub-project is to simulate the day-by-day operations in a dairy cattle herd. Three additional ICPC (International Cooperation Partner Countries) partners from the Mediterranean, north-eastern Europe, northern Africa and Middle East regions are being recruited to: - support the project with substantial data of interest (The main interest is in phenotypic data on beef traits of dairy cattle (weaning weight, growth rate, feed intake, etc.); additionally, phenotypic test day data for dairy traits are considered; any other available phenotypic data on dairy cattle; corresponding pedigrees.), - provide detailed information related to breeding strategies (outline of the breeding programme), - provide detailed information about herd parameters (herd size, culling rates within herds, culling strategies).For further information, please contact: E-mail: filippo.biscarini@agr.uni-goettingen.de To see the full details of the call, please consult: Low input breeds project
