SOBCows: Specialised organic breeding goals and breeding schemes for dairy cattle

The overall aim of the project is to increase the volume and profitability of organic milk production by: 1) Adjusting the breeding stock and production animals to organic production systems. The knowledge gained from genomic selection is here utilized in order to establish organic breeding lines based on the existing Danish
dairy breeds. 2) Providing sustainable methods for an organic niche production based on animals with specific genetic characteristics and animals from the native Danish dairy cattle breeds. Overall, the project will strengthen the credibility of organic dairy production as animals from the organic lines will have a higher genetic level with respect to health and welfare traits relative to the conventional
lines. Establishment of organic lines with special breeding characteristics and use of genetic material from the native Danish breeds will furthermore contribute to sustainable management of animal genetic resources in the form of a much larger genetic diversity among organic livestock. The project will be carried out as
theoretical simulations of breeding plans as well as a practical
evaluation of the recommendations.
