Abstract

The purpose of this research was to calculate the effect of several SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) in candidate genes on ease of birth, ability to preweaning growth, muscle development at weaning and maternal attitude during suckling in 140 Limousin cows. It was shown that no SNP was with...

Abstract

This review of literature was conducted to update individual estimates of genetic parameters for preweaning growth traits of cattle and to report the overall means, ranges and marginal means of estimates of the genetic parameters by breed of cattle and statistical model in order to investigate the...

Abstract

Conception results of 9 breeds (Hungarian Fleckvieh, Hereford, Aberdeen-Angus, Red Angus, Lincoln Red, Limousin, Charolais, Blonde d'Aquitaine and Shaver) kept under the same conditions on peat-bog soil pasture at Keszthely were evaluated between 1998 and 2005. The effect of breed, age, date of...

Abstract

(Co)variance components, direct and maternal breed additive, dominance, and epistatic loss effects on preweaning weight gain of beef cattle were estimated. Data were from 478,466 animals in Ontario, Canada, from 1986 to 1999, including records of both purebred and crossbred animals from Angus,...

Abstract

In 1997 in Italy, there were almost 8000 breeding cows of the Limousin breed registered in the herdbook. For cows at 3 farms, age at 1st calving averaged 994 days, and calving interval 433 days. For 1522 calvings on these farms, single births numbered 1495, twin births 10, stillbirths 28, and calf...

Abstract

Data on purebred and crossbred calves from Nelore cows were analysed. In the 1st trial there were no significant differences between purebred Nelore calves and Tabapuã × Gir calves in birth weight, weaning weight, body weight of dam at calving or the relationships of calf birth weight and weaning...

Abstract

Heterosis effects were evaluated as traits of the dam in F2 progeny of F1 dams and F3 and F4 progeny of F2 and F3 dams in 3 composite breed types. Breed effects were evaluated for the 9 parental breeds (Red Poll, Hereford, American Angus, Limousin, Brown Mountain, Pinzgauer, Gelbvieh, Simmental and ...

Abstract

In a long-term experiment (1978-87), fattening performance and carcass traits were studied in crossbreds of beef-breed bulls with Simmental cows and in purebred Simmentals. The beef breed sires were German Angus (GA), Charolais and Limousin. Fattening was carried out on a commercial diet to a final ...

Abstract

Calving and weaning rates, birth weight, ease of calving, and 24-h calf survival were evaluated in a 4-breed diallel of Simmental, Limousin, Polled Hereford (PH) and Brahman cattle in 5 calf crops. Limousin dams tended to have the highest calving and weaning rates because they produced heavier...
