Short summary
The advantages of increasing lactation persistency in dairy cattle are indisputable on the practical herd level. More persistent lactation brings a longer high-production period. In this study estimate the breeding values of lactation persistency, test day of milk yield, somatic cell score, reproductive traits (calving interval, days open), and longevity in Slovak Holstein dairy cattle were estimated and the relationship between persistency of lactation and other selected trait was analyzed.
