The aims of this work were to describe daughter fertility breeding values in cows in a subset of Australian dairy herds, and to describe effects of two rates of increase in sire daughter fertility breeding values on 6-week in-calf rates under some simplifying assumptions. This report focusses on Holstein-Friesian cows (cows with breed code 'FFFF').
