Abstract

Genetic studies with plants and small animals have yielded considerable information of great fundamental and economic value. Dairy cattle, on the other hand, with their long gestation period, single birth, and relatively short life span, do not lend themselves to rapid progress in compiling sufficient data for sound conclusion.
