Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the association of beta-carotene concentration in plasma at the moment of artificial insemination (AI) on pregnancy/AI in lactating Holstein cows. A total of 399 events from 364 lactating Holstein cows were enrolled in the trial (143 primiparous and 221...

Abstract

Karan Fries is an Indian composite breed of cattle with superior milk production with a greater disease resistance than many other cattle. Understanding of the basic sperm and semen characteristics is necessary to develop the artificial insemination and sperm sexing methods. This study was...

Abstract

Artificial insemination of cattle became a commercial reality in 1936, and in 1952 the first calves were born as a result of freeze-thawed semen insemination. The long-held aspiration for pre determination of sex became a reality with the development of sperm sorting technology with the first...

Abstract

The desire to increase profit on dairy farms necessitates consideration of the revenue attainable from the sale of surplus calves for meat production. However, the generation of calves that are expected to excel in efficiency of growth and carcass merit must not be achieved to the detriment of the...

Abstract

Background: Little is known about the genetic architecture of economically important traits in Brown Swiss cattle because only few genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have been carried out in this breed. Moreover, most GWAS have been performed for single traits, thus not providing detailed...

Abstract

The objective of this experiment was to evaluate effects of extended-release eprinomectin on fescue toxicosis and impacts on performance and reproduction in fall-calving beef cows. Fall-calving Angus × Simmental multiparous cows [n=335; age=5.8±2.1 yr; 586.5±6.0 kg body weight (BW); 5.48±0.05 body...

Abstract

This paper examines ex-ante impacts of two policy interventions that improve productivity of local-breed cows through artificial insemination (AI) and producers' access to distant markets through a dairy market hub. The majority of cattle in Kilosa district in Tanzania are local low productivity...
