      The main objectives of this study were: 1) to evaluate the phenotypic associations between linear type traits and survival in New Zealand and identify potential new traits for inclusion in the type classification scheme in Ireland, and 2) to quantify the potential of linear type traits scored in Ireland as early predictors of genetic merit for fertility and survival in Ireland.
