AbstractFull Text

Two CYP17 genes, located on different loci and expressing enzymes with significantly different activities, have been identified in the South African Angora goat population. Three unique genotypes (named He, Hu, and Ho), which differed not only in the genes encoding CYP17, but also in copy number...

AbstractFull Text

The effect of testosterone on penis-prepucial adherences and production of fibre was studied in 30 alpacas. Animals were 18 months old and were distributed in three groups: without treatment (T0), treated with testosterone enanthate (0.5 mg/kg/body weight) every two weeks during 12 weeks (T2E), and ...

AbstractFull Text

Growth and wool yield of 100 Nilagiri and 100 Synthetic (Nilagiri × Merino crossbred) lambs were studied under intensive and semi-intensive system of management. At the end of experiment, the lambs under intensive system gained more body weight than the semi-intensive system in both the genotypes....
