Short summary
Genetic parameters for 11 456 Tunisian Holstein cows were estimated for the following five reproductive traits: calving interval (CI), calving to first service interval, calving to conception interval (CCI), first service to conception interval and number of services per conception. Low heritabilities were estimated for these traits, and genetic correlation estimates between them were moderately high. The CCI–CI genetic correlation was 0.85, indicating that they are the same trait genetically.
