Abstract

LoinMAX (LM) is a quantitative trait locus (QTL), which was found to be segregated in Australian Poll Dorset sheep, and maps to the distal end of sheep chromosome 18. LM-QTL was reported to increase Musculus longissimus dorsi area and weight by 11% and 8%, respectively. The aim of this study was to ...

Abstract

Cattle. The cattle population increased by 7.5% to 4, 145, 109 head; this increase is attributed largely to the success of the tick control programme. There are now 110 commercial ranches, with 85, 000 cattle, and there is considerable demand for Boran bulls. At the Livestock Experimental Station,...
