Dairy Cattle Breeding Simulation Program (DCBSP)

DCBSPThe DCBSP system is a dairy cattle breeding simulation program to teach undergraduate and graduate students animal breeding principles associated with selection for multiple traits in dairy cattle.

The current version of the program (DCBSP v.4.9) is written in FORTRAN 90, and a web-based interface is developed for the students to interact with the program in the teaching environment. Both the backend simulation engine and the frontend web-based interface are driven by a module written in the Visual C++ programming language that loads the input files, runs the simulation, and uploads the output files onto the proper directories for each student on the web site.

The system is hosted on our dedicated simulation server at UC Davis and currently 13 universities use our system in their Diary Breeding courses.
