Abstract

Understanding the linkage disequilibrium (LD) across the genome, haplotype structure, and persistence of phase between breeds can enable us to appropriately design and implement the genome-wide association (GWAS) and genomic selection (GS) in beef cattle. We estimated the extent of genome-wide LD,...

Abstract

Repeat breeder cattle do not become pregnant until after three or more breeding attempts; this represents a critical reproductive disorder. Embryo transfer (ET) following artificial insemination (AI) in repeat breeder cattle reportedly improves pregnancy rate, leading to speculation that interferon ...

Abstract

Lameness in cattle is a welfare concern and is associated with important economic losses in beef cattle operations. Infection of the distal interphalangeal joint (DIJ) results in severe lameness and if left untreated carries a poor prognosis. Diagnosis of DIJ infection is challenging in the field....

Abstract

Accelerometers have been used to record many cattle postures and behaviours including standing, lying, walking, grazing and ruminating but not cattle drinking behaviour. This study explores whether neck-mounted triaxial accelerometers can identify drinking and whether head-neck position and...
