Short summary
Improved milk yield in dairy cows results in worsening health and reproduction. Some linear traits are genetically associated with health and reproduction and can be used to assist selection programs. The National Breeding Centre for Dairy and Forage of Indonesia has not included linear traits in the breeding program. This study estimates genetic parameters of linear traits. The traits under study were found to be heritable and can be included in the breeding program along with milk yield.
