AbstractFull Text

The objective of this work was to study "days for a specific weight" traits in Nelore breeding programs comparing them with traditional traits such as average daily weight gain. Thus, this study aimed to estimate genetic parameters for days to reach 180 kg (D180), days to reach 300 kg (D300),...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to evaluate non-genetic factors and genetic parameters of the growth traits in Sumba Ongole (SO) cattle. The growth traits were consisted of birth weight (BW), weaning weight (WW), yearling weight (YW), average daily gain of pre-weaning (ADG1) and post-weaning (ADG2). Data ...

Abstract

Three different models including or not the direct and maternal non-additive effects and the fixed effects of contemporary group, parity order, direct and maternal heterosis and the direct and maternal additive genetic random effects were compared for predicting breeding values of pre-weaning daily ...

Abstract

A total of 4627 records on preweaning growth traits, birth weight (BW), weaning weight (WW) and preweaning daily gain (ADG) of Hanwoo's born form 1970 to 2005 were collected from Hanwoo Experiment Station, National Livestock Research Institute. Variance components and heritabilities of BW, WW and...

Abstract

Birth weight (BWT), 205-day adjusted weaning weight (205DWT) and average daily gain till weaning (ADG) data of 1277 N'Dama calves were analyzed by nested analysis of variance procedure of SAS to derive half-sib estimate of variance and covariance components which were used to estimate heritability...

Abstract

Records of birth weight (BWT) and weaning weight (WWT) of 1184 Friesian cattle calves (591 male and 593 female), progeny of 49 sires during the period from 1990 to 2000 were analysed. The objective of this study was to construct selection indices for selecting Friesian calves on the basis of...

Abstract

Colombia has eight Creole breeds (Bos taurus), these being descended from the cattle introduced by the Spanish conquerors in 1493, during Christopher Columbus' second voyage. The Sanmartinero (SM) breed originated in the Colombian Orinoquia region's foothills. This breed (as well as most other...
