  • R. E. Agnew (a1), T. Yan (a1) and M. G. Porter (a1)

Extract

The accurate prediction of body composition of dairy cows is important for developing appropriate nutritional and management regimes. The objective of the present study was to develop prediction equations for empty body (EB) composition of lactating dairy cows using body weight and other live animal data.
