Abstract

Three genetic groups of Holstein-Friesian dairy cows were established from within the Moorepark (Teagasc, Ireland) dairy research herd: LowNA, indicative of the Irish national average-genetic-merit North American Holstein-Friesian; HighNA, high-genetic-merit North American Holstein-Friesian;...

Abstract

This study investigates the scoring distribution of foot and leg linear type traits, rear legs (side and rear view), and foot angle of Holstein and Jersey dairy bulls provided by semen companies in Brazil. Registers of 392 Holstein and 92 Jersey bulls were found in the websites of these companies,...

Abstract

Group of secondary traits such as health, longevity, type and milkability represents some of very important factors for successful milk production. These traits have been given great importance in recent years. In order to realize productive life of dairy cows as long and successful as possible,...

Abstract

Russia's Krasnodonskoe company has identified pig production as a priority area for development, and in 2007 took the decision to replace its existing pig herd, which no longer met market demands for meat yield or quality. To achieve this goal, in 2008 Krasnodonskoe imported pigs from Peak Genetics ...

Abstract

Determination of a boar's prepotency involves establishing how consistently boars pass on economically useful characteristics to their progeny. Identification of highly prepotent boars is of particular value where artificial insemination is widely used. The prepotency of boars has major importance...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to identify genetic markers and genomic regions associated with susceptibility to Mycobacterium avium ssp. paratuberculosis (MAP) infection in Holstein cattle. Associated single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were identified by genotyping 521 MAP-infected Holstein...

Abstract

The incidence of and risk factors associated with calving assistance and dystocia in pasture-based dairy herds were determined from analysis of 152,641 records of full-term calvings from Holstein-Friesian dams served by artificial insemination (AI) sires of seven breeds in herds of 20 calvings or...

Abstract

Background: In national evaluations, direct genomic breeding values can be considered as correlated traits to those for which phenotypes are available for traditional estimation of breeding values. For this purpose, estimates of the accuracy of direct genomic breeding values expressed as genetic...

Abstract

The follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) acts on the sertoli cells in the seminiferous tubules of the testis and regulates spermatogenesis up to the secondary spermatocyte stage. Allelic and genotypic frequencies of bovine follicular stimulating hormone (exon III) gene were studied for 83 animals...

Abstract

We have previously shown that Holstein cows selected for their homozygous favorable ("fertil+") or unfavorable ("fertil-") haplotype at one quantitative trait loci (QTL) of female fertility located on chromosome 3 (QTL-F-Fert-BTA3) had a different success rate 35 and 90 days after the first ...
