  1. Average rank correlations based on estimated breeding values (BV) from model A (additive effects only) and total genetic values (BV + DV) from model A + D (additive and dominance effects) for calving interval (CI), milk, fat and protein yield in Holstein and Jersey cows based on fivefold cross validation across different percentages of selection
