Resumo

Dairy cows are responsible for a fair amount of gas emissions in the atmosphere (mainly methane, ammonia, and carbon dioxide), as well as waste outputs. Therefore, identifying high-fertility breeding cows and increasing fertility rates can diminish pollution and help minimize the effect of global warming and improve the environmental impact of the farming system. As a step to achieve this goal, changes in the lipid composition of the bovine uterus exposed to greater (LF-LCL group) or lower (SF-SCL group) concentrations of progesterone during postovulation were investigated by matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization mass spectrometry. Two measurements were made for each cow, and after preprocessing the data, the measurements available to analysis consist of relative intensities at significant 76 mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) values identifying specific ions in the spectra. Due to the small sample size, seven cows in the LF-LCL group and 10 cows in the SF-SCL group, the usual methods could not discriminate between groups. A model-based approach was therefore proposed, and due to the discrete nature of the data, a truncated mixture of bivariate beta distributions was fitted to the data using an expectation-maximization algorithm. However, unlike the usual approach for mixture density estimation problems, to each 76 m/z value, we assign an unobserved label shared by all cows in the same group. The role of these labels is similar to the frailty effect in survival models in which all cows in a given group would share some random effect due to group effect. These labels will be used to identify m/z values, which could potentially account for different fertility rates. (AU)
