Abstract

Smallholder dairy cattle production systems in Africa are intensifying production through importation of germplasm from breeding programs conducted in temperate regions to improve commercial cow populations. Presence of genotype by environment interaction results in unfavorable correlated...

Abstract

This study aimed to identify risk factors of dystocia and calf death at or during birth on a large dairy farm in Germany and to illustrate practical approaches of reducing it. Another aim was to determine influence factors of calf birth weight and their association with difficult calvings and...

Untersuchung von Einflussfaktoren auf den Geburtsverlauf bei Kühen und auf das Kälbergeburtsgewicht, 2016, pp xiii + 200 pp.
Abstract

Progesterone (P4) has a key role in the establishment and maintenance processes of pregnancy in cows. The modulation of this steroid at strategic times during ovulation synchronization programs can increase pregnancy success, especially in high-producing dairy cows. Therefore, the objective of this ...

Abstract

Globally the average size of pig herds are increasing and amount of labour spent per sow/finisher pig is decreasing. These changes require sows which need less management interventions. In addition to easier manageable sows modern genotypes will also need to be more adaptable considering that...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) amongst the biotechnologies of reproduction is the one that provides greater range of results in animal breeding programs. The adequate selection of productive and reproductive attributes of females and especially males is the essential basis for maximizing the...

Abstract

The aims of this study were (1) to determine the role of test results of young horses in selection for sport performance, (2) to assess the genetic diversity of a closed horse breed and (3) the consequences of inbreeding for male reproduction. The study was performed using existing databases...

Abstract

Fertility in high-producing dairy cows has decreased over the years, which has been associated with reduced estradiol (E2) concentrations during proestrus and suboptimal progesterone (P4) concentrations during early stages of gestation. The objectives of the present study were to evaluate the...

Abstract

The three studies were conducted to (1) investigate the prevalence of subclinical endometritis (SCE) around breeding and its effect on first service conception rate (FSCR) in dairy cows, to (2) determine the correlation between periparturient serum concentrations of non-esterified fatty acids...

Abstract

In beef cattle production use of artificial insemination (AI) is generally low, and sires in natural mating are often used in only one or a few herds. Lack of connectedness among herds may occur, causing bias, low precision of genetic parameters and reduced accuracy of predicted breeding values. In ...
