Abstract

This study aimed to investigate mRNA transcriptions of interferon stimulated genes ISG15 and OAS1 in the peripheral blood of Chinese Holstein dairy cows during early pregnancy, by which we hope to provide an insight into their applications in bovine early pregnancy diagnosis. A total of 27 heifers...

Abstract

Persistence of willingness to work has been used to measure the importance of resources and performance of species-specific behaviors. Our objectives were to develop and validate a "push-door" model to assess cattle motivation to lie down in a deep-bedded area. Motivation for lying was manipulated...
