Calving Ease Updates for August 2020 Proofs
A combination of genetics and management has reduced the percentage of difficult births in heifers experienced on farms in the last decade. As a result, August 2020 calving traits will reflect lower breed averages. The new average Sire Calving Ease (SCE) for Brown Swiss will be 3.0%. Average Daughter Calving Ease (DCE) will be 2.8%. The previous base for both traits was 5.2%.
