Abstract

The study aimed to analyze the genetic structure of parental lines of Chinese Simmental beef cattle and Chinese local cattle by the 770K SNP markers covering the whole genome of cattle and trait-related SNP markers, and predict heterosis of different hybrid combinations in growth, carcass and meat...

Abstract

This study aimed to improve Bali cattle's efficiency and productivity by measuring ovarian follicles and vaginal temperature in Bali cattle that experienced a silent heat using ten bali cattle with normal estrus and bali cattle that experience a silent heat. The research samples were divided into...

Abstract

Human-animal interaction (HAI) research spans across many scientific fields and animal taxa. For livestock species, HAI research tends to focus on animals that are managed in close proximity with humans such as poultry, dairy cattle, and swine. Given the nature of rangeland cattle production, HAI...

Abstract

The African cattle provide unique genetic resources shaped up by both diverse tropical environmental conditions and human activities, the assessment of their genetic diversity will shade light on the mechanism of their remarkable adaptive capacities. We therefore analyzed the genetic diversity of ...

Abstract

Grazing by livestock, particularly cattle (Bos spp.), is the dominant land use across North American rangelands and often co-occurs in habitats used by wildlife. Deer (Odocoileus spp.) are an ecologically and economically important native wildlife species in North America. Sustainable management...

Abstract

Icelandic Cattle is the only dairy cattle breed native to Iceland. It currently numbers ca. 26 000 breeding females. We used 50k genotypes of over 8000 Icelandic Cattle to estimate genomic and pedigree-based inbreeding and to detect selection signatures using the integrated haplotype score. We used ...

Abstract

Across medieval Europe, cattle commanded a major, if shifting, economic and social value, and their use for meat, milk, and traction is well established. Although the changing roles of cattle throughout this period may have influenced relationships between humans and cattle, this has been largely...

Abstract

BACKGROUND: The study compared the growth performance, carcass characteristics and meat quality of steers of Xuanhan yellow cattle, Simmental crossbreed cattle (Simmental × Xuanhan yellow cattle) and cattle-yak (Jersey × yak). All steers were feed with the same diet from 6 months until slaughter at ...

Abstract

Thirteen qualitative and six morphometric variables on a total of 651 adult cattle (76 oxen and 575 cows) from four purposively selected districts were recorded to characterize the cattle populations in and around the breeding tract of Raya cattle. General linear model, frequency, and multivariate...
