The positive fat effects of DGAT1 and neighboring SNPs in the 2.08 Mb region of 1,379,063-3,464,083 bp were subjected to positive selection. Of the 41 SNPs present in both the 294,079 cows of the current Holstein population and the unselected Holsteins (Group I), 37 SNPs had higher frequencies (AFD > 0) in the 294,079 cows of the current Holstein population than in the unselected Holsteins for the alleles with positive effects on fat yield and negative effects on milk and protein yields. FY+ = positive fat effect. AFD = allele frequency difference between the unselected Holsteins and the 294,079 cows in the current Holstein population
