Abstract

The objective of this study was to estimate genetic parameters associated with lamb survival for preweaning mortality and mortality at birth. Records used (n = 62,113; 2000 to 2015) for this study were a subset of much larger dataset (n = 270,400) from 1950 to 2015 as a preliminary investigation of ...

Abstract

Laboratory mice preferentially rear their offspring in communal nests (CN), with all mothers contributing to maternal care and feeding of all the pups. Previous studies using primarily outbred mice have shown that offspring reared under CN conditions may display increased preweaning growth rates...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to assess the preweaning performance, health, and survival of calves fed fresh colostrum from their dams compared to calves receiving colostrum that was not from their dams, and had been stored frozen or refrigerated. A total of 182 Holstein heifer calves born during ...

Abstract

The aim of the study was to analyse the effects of maternal obesity and the litter size on the growth rate and plasma concentrations of GH, IGF-1, insulin, and glucose in ewe lambs during the first 6 weeks of their postnatal life. Seventy-six SCP sheep: 35 ewes and 41 female offspring were used....

Abstract

Malnutrition during foetal life might induce structural and metabolic changes in animals and humans. Studies in mink have shown that maternal (F0-generation) protein-malnutrition leads to lower birth weight of the F1, but higher birth weight of the F2-generation and leads to changes in some key...

Abstract

The growth performance and the effect of genotype, age of dam, sex, type of birth, weight at birth and amount of milk suckled by Hamdani, Karakul and Morkaraman lambs (n=94) on their body weight during the suckling period were investigated. Birth weight of Hamdani, Karakul and Morkaraman lambs were ...

Abstract

Large White (LW), Estonian Large White (ELW), ELW × LW and LW × ELW pigs were studied. The LW pigs were from the Volga region. These were bred using 5-7 sires and 14-16 dams per group. In the 4 groups respectively, litter size averaged 11.1, 11.0, 11.6 and 11.5, litter weight at 2 months of age...

Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate the genetic and phenotypic correlations among daily weight gains at various intervals of pre- and postweaning growth in a herd of Landrace pigs. Data on body weights were collected from 967 pigs to estimate the daily weight gains at 4-week intervals during...
