AbstractFull Text

In Kazakhstan, as in most developed countries, a transition to the breeding of Holstein and Holsteinized cattle is performed in dairy cattle breeding. It became possible due to the extensive use of imported livestock and seed from getters from different countries. Results of a scientific experiment ...

Abstract

The objectives of this cross-sectional study were to characterize reproductive management practices on Canadian dairy farms and describe differences based on regional and demographic factors. A questionnaire was offered to all licensed Canadian dairy producers and included 189 questions regarding...

Abstract

Greater metabolic demands in high-producing dairy cows are believed to be a cause of sub-fertility in these animals. Previously, supplementation with vitamin B complex molecules has shown benefits in improving milk production, health, and reproductive efficiency of dairy cows. The primary aim of...

Abstract

The objectives of this study were to determine (1) factors associated with serum concentration of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1); (2) the relationship between serum IGF-1 concentration during the first week postpartum and ovarian cyclicity status by 35 d postpartum (DPP); (3) an optimum serum ...

Abstract

The objectives of this study were to (1) evaluate factors associated with variation in circulating anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) concentrations, (2) establish an optimum AMH threshold predictive of pregnancy to first artificial insemination (P/AI), (3) examine the relationship between AMH and...

AbstractFull Text

Boar taint can occur in pork from intact males and is caused by concentrations of androstenone and/or skatole higher than specific levels. The objective of this study was to investigate the possibility of reducing the amount of androstenone and skatole in fat tissues of intact males using genetic...

AbstractFull Text

The widespread use of artificial insemination in the pig industry has provided breeders with access to genetic material from superior boars from around the world. Selection of parent stock is based on estimated breeding values (EBVs), which are regularly computed in all countries performing genetic ...

Abstract

The objective was to evaluate in-line milk progesterone (mP4) data to determine dynamics of pre- and post-insemination mP4 profiles and their associations with parity and outcomes of artificial insemination (AI) in Holstein cows. Milk progesterone (ng/mL) was quantified at pre-determined time...

Abstract

The main importance of eimeriosis in cattle is due to lower performance shown with the disease in its sub-clinical form. This study evaluated the efficacy of lasalocid used against Eimeria spp. parasitizing calves. We also evaluated the weight gain of calves submitted to different treatments and...

Abstract

Pregnancy per AI (P/AI) following the use of 1 of 2 timed AI (TAI) protocols and 2 different intervals between TAI and resynchronization were compared in heifers that were inseminated with either conventional or sex-sorted semen. Holstein heifers (n=317; 527 inseminations) were submitted to a 5-d...
