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

An efficient dairy herd must produce a living, healthy calf per cow per year, and it should be accomplished with a Calving-Conception Interval (CCI) no greater than 100 days. Objective: Describe CCI epidemiological aspects in specialized dairy cattle in Costa Rica during the 2000-2013 period....

Abstract

Artificial insemination using sex-sorted semen is employed to efficiently increase the number of female dairy calves born. Previous studies have determined that using sex-sorted semen is beneficial to improve the management, but the mechanism by which it increases cattle numbers through objective...

Abstract

The objective was to study whether the protocols of fixed time artificial insemination and the breed are related to pregnancy in cows in the Ecuadorian Amazonia. 497 registers of individual services corresponding to different breed were evaluated from October 2013 to October 2014: Brahman (B),...

Abstract

Background: Domestication, breed formation and intensive selection have resulted in divergent cattle breeds that likely exhibit their own genomic signatures. In this study, we used genotypes from 27,612 autosomal single nucleotide polymorphisms to characterize population structure based on 9214...

Abstract

The productive and reproductive characteristics of Brown Swiss (B) cross-bred cows were investigated by comparing with those of Holstein (H) cows housed in the same barn. Additionally, their hair cortisol levels were analyzed to evaluate the extent of stress experienced during dry and lactation...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to determine the reproductive performance and culling reasons by using some reproductive records of 165 Brown Swiss and Holstein cows, between 2008-2013 years. Ages at first breeding of heifers in Browns Swiss and Holstein breeds were determined as 728 and 712 days,...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate the reproductive performance of pure Holstein (HO), pure Brown Swiss (BS), BH crossbred (BS sire × HO cow) and HB crossbred (HO sire × BS cow) under Egyptian conditions with reference to their milk yield. The pregnancy per AI at 30 and 75 days post ...
