    Summary
    The objective of this study was to compare accuracies of different Bayesian regression models in predicting molecular breeding values for health traits in Holstein cattle. The dataset was composed of 2505 records reporting the occurrence of retained fetal membranes , metritis , mastitis , displaced abomasum , lameness , clinical endometritis , respiratory disease , dystocia and subclinical ketosis in Holstein cows, collected between 2012 and 2014 in 16 dairies located across the US. Cows were genotyped with the Illumina BovineHD. The quality controls for SNP genotypes were HWE...
