Abstract

Norwegian Elkhound Grey is used for both leashed and non-leashed tracking. This study provides influence of fixed effects and estimates of genetic parameters of traits related to both types of tracks. In total, 5393 records from 1991 animals tested in the years 1995-2014 on lashed performance (5...

Abstract

Castration of male cattle affects carcass and meat traits. An evaluation was done of the effect of surgical castration at birth and immunocastration on carcass and meat traits in 7-8-mo-old male Holstein calves (average weight= 240.8 kg). Animals in the surgical castration treatment were castrated...

Abstract

Running multiple breeding programs for the same species requires a high level of investment and management; hence, to date there have not been any attempts to develop specialised genetic lines for different environments in any aquaculture species. This study made the first attempt to conduct a...

Abstract

In contrast to natural and historical diets of wild and domesticated ruminants, the diversity of plant species is limited in diets of modern dairy cows. Are "production diseases" linked to this? We conducted a trial to test the effects of a multicomponent herbal feed additive (HFA) on health,...
