Abstract

The establishment of repositories of frozen semen, for the conservation of agricultural genetic resources, is not a simple matter of collecting and freezing semen in the hope that one day it will be suitable for use in an artificial insemination procedure. Important genetic issues need to be...

Abstract

The foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) epidemic in the U.K. in 2001 highlighted the threat of infectious diseases to rare and valuable livestock and stimulated a renewed interest in biosecurity. Not all diseases resemble FMD, however; transmission routes and pathological effects vary greatly, so...

Abstract

Artificial Insemination (AI), the first generation of Reproductive Biotechnologies (RB), is widely used in cattle with more than 110 million females, accounting for 20% of the total global population of breeding females, inseminated annually. There is still great potential for expansion, but...

Abstract

Cloning mammals from somatic cells by nuclear transfer has the potential to assist with the preservation of genetic diversity. An increasing number of species have been successfully cloned by this approach; however, present methods are inefficient with few cloned embryos resulting in healthy...

Abstract

A review. The development of laparoscopic intrauterine insemination for sheep has been essential for the implementation of national sire reference schemes in UK. This technology has developed contemporaneously with ultrasonic scanning for in vivo assessment of carcass traits and the use of BLUP for ...
