First through third parity lactation records of 91,770 Israeli Holsteins inseminated between 1980 and 1986 were evaluated by univariate mixed model methodology for fertility and production traits. The analytical model included the effects of herd-year-season, group of sires, sire, cow, and residual. Sire, cow, and residual were random: all other effects were fixed. Sires were assumed to be unrelated. Variance components were computed separately for first and second parity by Henderson's method 3. First parity heritabilities were .035 for conception status [1/number of inseminations to conception], .048 for days from calving to first breeding, and .135 for milk production. Corresponding second parity heritabilities were .022, .031, and .125. First parity genetic correlations were -.02 between conception status and milk, .27 between days to first breeding and milk, and -.03 between the two fertility traits. All environmental correlations, and all second parity genetic correlations among these traits, were between -.2 and .2. Genetic trends, estimated as twice the regression of the evaluation of the cow's sire on calving date, were 1% for conception status, .1 for days to first breeding, and 154 kg milk/yr. Thus, there was no indication of an adverse genetic relationship between fertility and milk production in this population.
