Broiler chicken welfare, health and performance are strictly linked with skeleton development. Lameness compromises welfare of broiler chickens and causes considerable economic loss since lame birds have difficulty accessing feed and water, become dehydrated and eventually die. Leg disorders are...

AbstractFull Text

Nucleotide sequencing of bovine osteopontin gene showed a novel DNA polymorphism 37421762 (C > A) in the 3′-untranslated region (3′-UTR) of the gene. Association test was performed to analyze its relation with milk composition but it was found non-significant in all analyzed traits. So, it was...
