Abstract

The objective of this study was to investigate the potential differences among Holstein-Friesian (HF), Montbéliarde (MB), Normande (NM), Norwegian Red (NRF), Montbéliarde × Holstein-Friesian (MBX), and Normande × Holstein-Friesian (NMX) across 2 seasonal grass-based systems of milk production. The...

Abstract

In order to evaluate artificial cooling and timed artificial insemination (TAI) protocol on fertility during summer months, 90 Holstein heifers were randomly and equally assigned to three treatments: (a) control group (S) with visual heat detection and insemination a.m-p.m after heat detection; (b) ...

Abstract

An experiment was performed on 128 heifers (79 Holstein and 49 Normande heifers) born during four successive winters (1989-1992) and aimed at studying the effect of limiting average daily live weight gain (ADG) during two successive winters on performance and longevity when heifers first calved at...

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 ...
