Inheritance best Criterion for the Culling of cow* A cow's inherited ability to produce determines the amount of milk and butterfat she is capable of producing. Her environment feed, care and management - provide only the opportunity to pro duce up to this capacity. Iowa State University Extension Dairymen Wallace Taylor points out that production records are the best criteria for measuring this inheritance. Taylor believes the lower-producing 15 to 20 percent of the herd should be considered for culling each year. If cows are not paying their way, consider replacing them. However, before you compare production records on cows of different ages, adjust the records to the same mature-equivalent age basis. Single, records, provide a good estimate of producing quality, but the more records are better. Records of close relatives should also be considered in any culling program. Taylor adds that production records should not provide the only criteria for culling. The time of year when the cow calves Is Important data from the Iowa Dairy Herd Improvement Association re- potts for 1961 show 5 to 10 percent mote production for cows calving in the fall and winter months over those calving in the summer. The length of the dry period affects production and should be considered too. Michigan DHIA results show increases in milk production during lactations following a longer dry period. The increase was from 9,511 pounds of milk for a twoweek dry period to 11,567 pounds for a 6 to 8 week dry period. Butterfat increased from J47 pounds to 413 pounds. Taylor says that consideration in determining when to dry up a cow is her condition. She should be fed grain and be in good condition when site calves. Sis to eight weeks is the recommended length of dry period. Other factors to be considered in culling include how rapidly the cow matures, her breeding record: her disease and mastitis record, including her family record; and her type, disposition and ease of milking. Taylor says the length of time between calving is also important The ideal period is 12 or 13 months. Culling should be done during the most favorable time of the year. It may be best to delay culling during the base period for milk production and then cull later. port*.
