The German Holstein herdbook organizations introduced the project KuhVision in June 2016 to achieve a reference population of 120.000 cows from whole herd genotyping within 3 years until June 2019. The goal of 550 participating herds with average 200 milking cows was reached already at the beginning of 2017. Meanwhile over 50,000 cows are in milk and provide phenotypes.
