Short summary
Genetic polymorphims in the growth hormone (GH) gene were studied in 410 Holstein dairy cows. Genotyping was carried out using PCR-RFLP. Data were analyzed by the MIXED procedure to reveal the effect of GH genotypes on reproductive traits. GH-AluI had a favorable effect on exanimate traits except for the age at the first calving. The homozygous LL genotype seemed to be advantageous for calving interval and days open. A significant effect of different GH-AluI–MspI combined genotypes was found.
