Abstract

Bovine PRL gene is considered one of the important hereditary components of milk productivity, thus seems to be an excellent candidate gene for milk production traits. The study was conducted to study the distribution pattern of allelic variants at the prolactin-RsaI locus in 210 indigenous cattle...

Abstract

Background: Cattle rearing in Cameroon is both economically and culturally important, however parasitic diseases detrimentally impact cattle productivity. In sub-Saharan Africa bovine fasciolosis is generally attributed to F. gigantica, although understanding of Fasciola species present and local...

Abstract

With its vast territory and complex natural environment, China boasts rich cattle genetic resources. To gain the further insight into the genetic diversity and paternal origins of Chinese cattle, we analyzed the polymorphism of Y-SNPs (UTY19 and ZFY10) and Y-STRs (INRA189 and BM861) in 34 Chinese ...

Abstract

Data on birth weight and mortality pattern of Zebu (Sahiwal and Tharparkar) and Crossbred (Holstein Friesian × Tharparkar) cattle spread over 16 years were utilized to analyze the causes of calf mortality and to study the effect of non-genetic factors on calf mortality. Calf mortality was higher in ...
