Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Genetics
  • Statistics
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Selection, Genetics, Heritability, Herd and Statistics. The concepts of his Selection study are interwoven with issues in Sampling and Regression. His Heritability research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Veterinary medicine and Progeny testing.

His research in Veterinary medicine focuses on subjects like Inbred strain, which are connected to Animal breeding and Livestock. He interconnects Animal husbandry, Agroforestry, Honey Bees, Biotechnology and Inbreeding in the investigation of issues within Animal breeding. His Herd study is concerned with the larger field of Animal science.

His most cited work include:

  • Animal breeding plans (511 citations)
  • THE EFFICIENCY OF THREE METHODS OF SELECTION (327 citations)
  • Intra-sire correlations or regressions of offspring on dam as a method of estimating heritability of characteristics. (213 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Jay L. Lush focuses on Animal science, Herd, Genetics, Heritability and Dairy cattle. His study in Animal science is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ice calving and Lactation. The Herd study combines topics in areas such as Crossbreed, Inbreeding, Selection and Milk production.

Jay L. Lush combines subjects such as Biotechnology and Animal breeding with his study of Inbreeding. The study incorporates disciplines such as Statistics and Sire in addition to Selection. He has researched Heritability in several fields, including Veterinary medicine, Demography and Progeny testing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (34.78%)
  • Herd (15.65%)
  • Genetics (13.04%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1956-2010)?

  • Animal science (34.78%)
  • Herd (15.65%)
  • Selection (11.30%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Jay L. Lush spends much of his time researching Animal science, Herd, Selection, Dairy cattle and Animal breeding. His Milk production and Culling study, which is part of a larger body of work in Animal science, is frequently linked to Production and Butterfat, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Herd study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Inbreeding and Heritability.

His studies link Sire with Selection. His Dairy cattle study deals with Biotechnology intersecting with Simple linear regression. His Animal breeding course of study focuses on Livestock and Progeny testing, Inbred strain, Genetic correlation and Veterinary medicine.

Between 1956 and 2010, his most popular works were:

  • Heritability of quantitative characters in farm animals. (213 citations)
  • Genetic and Environmental Portions of the Variation among Herds in Butterfat Production (40 citations)
  • Genetic Relations between Body Measurements at Three Ages in Holsteins (33 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Statistics
  • Genetics
  • Gene

His primary scientific interests are in Animal science, Herd, Production, Regression and Daughter. His work on Animal science is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Heritability. His Regression research integrates issues from Econometrics, Correlation, Residual and Sire.

His Daughter research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Food science, Demography, Milk production and Maternal effect. Butterfat combines with fields such as Selection, Sampling, Inbreeding, Biotechnology and Simple linear regression in his research.
